Dirty Kanza is Here!

Posted on May 31, 2016

Dirty Kanza is here! Festivities kick off today for the 2016 Dirty Kanza. The DK Store at 727 Commercial Street, is open from 4-7 pm. With 2,200 riders and their family and support crews, we will have lots of visitors in town. Please stay alert for cyclists as they will be everywhere! Be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, June 4 from 4pm to midnight and come out and be part of the action at the Finish Line Block Party. Let’s show our community pride and support for the riders by lining the finish line chute, ringing the Emporia Main Street cowbells and cheering them on to the finish.
