2015 Theme


Celebrate the 84th Annual Fall Festival
in Arkansas City, Kansas
October 28 - 31, 2015

Game Night  

Lance NilesArkalalah means so much to so many people. When school starts back in late August/early September, Ark Citians begin counting the days until Arkalalah week. It seems as though it can’t get here fast enough. I can tell you for a fact that the Arkalalah committee has been meeting since February in preparation for the annual fall festival. We spend countless hours trying to improve on the festival. Sometimes we wonder if any of the changes we make really add to anyone’s enjoyment. There are always new events, but there are a few things that we will never change. Those are the first things you think of when you hear Arkalalah. Parades, pork burgers, Jeffy pups, carnival rides, races, pancakes, street games, class reunions, family reunions, and laughter.

 This year’s Arkalalah theme, “Game Night” is synonymous with the premise of family and fun that is Arkalalah. Games have changed over the years and some of the most well thought out games have stood the test of time. On behalf of the Arkalalah Executive Committee, and all of the sub committees that put the time and effort into making Arkalalah memorable, we hope you enjoy Arkalalah 2015 and create memories that you can relive with friends and family at your “Game Night”.
