Ginger Rogers Festival is a GO!!! Tickets now available...

Hey, y'all!!!

First off, long time no hear, eh? Hu has been pretty busy lately, which is not a great excuse, but... it's the one I have nevertheless...  ANYWAY, thanks to all who have been checking on the site time-to-time... keeping up with folks on FB, so we're all still Gingery, right?

now, the BIG news!!!


The Ginger Rogers Festival is set in Independence Missouri for the weekend of July 14-15, 2018!!! tickets are now available for purchase HERE.  Miss Missouri Marge Padgitt and her crew have done a magnificent job in the restoration of Ginger's birth house on 100 West Moore Street... and there will be many great presentations and events during the weekend, including keynote speaker Roberta Olden, who should need no introduction to a Gingerologist...   ...BTW, that pic is from yours truly, on GingerTennial Day, July 16, 2011... met Kat and Annaliese there, and got to speak with the owner a bit...

...a few years later, the owner contacted me and wanted to know if I wanted to purchase the house, or knew of anyone who did... was an interesting proposal, but would have been impossible to maintain it from 500+ miles away...but I was worried it fall into the wrong hands, as far as someone who wouldn't appreciate the historic significance of the house.  That's why I am SO glad Marge ended up with it, and has brought it into fully restored status!

I've made my reservations - hope to see y'all there! Only 75 slots available, so... get to it!!!

AND, hope to get more GingerPosts going...

Until then,

KIG, Y'all!!!
