When and Where is the Celebration?
This year will be the third Loving Day Celebration in the City of Wichita. It is planned for Saturday, June 9 at Hyde Park, 201 S. Greenwood, 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm. Loving Day's mission is to fight racial prejudice through education and to build multicultural community.
This Celebration is being organized by and for interracial couples and their mixed children, of any age, in Wichita.

We will be joined by Paul Mitchell the School with cosmetology students prepared to braid or fix your hair. There will also be a voter registration booth, an Ident-A-Kid booth from the Sedgwick County Sheriff, professional photographer MIchael Kinard to take family portraits for only $5 and we will selling t-shirts with LDW's new logo.

After The Event
What a fun day! Paul Mitchell did hair, Mike Kinard took photos, kids played games and colored. We all had a great time. We were joined by Councilwoman Lavonta Williams and many others. We had a very successful raffle with prizes donated by local business supporters and artists. It was a great day!
