With the Wichita River Festival just eight weeks away, May 7-15, cue the whining about all things festival-related. True, organizers are asking for criticism by requiring each West Bank Stage concertgoer to wear a $5 festival button and pay a $10 gate admission. And the acts, especially Bret Michaels and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, may be too rough-hewn and well-traveled for some tastes. But with the corporate sponsorships down about $80,000 from 2009 and $200,000 from 2008, the festival obviously had to come up with more revenue somewhere. At least the button fee remains a bargain for the rest of the nine-day party. It's also fitting that the 37th Admiral Windwagon Smith, revealed last weekend, is Devin Hansen, president of Sunflower Travel and chairman of the board of directors of Go Wichita, because Riverfest and tourism go together beautifully.
