Car show, art scavenger hunt among the events this weekend in NEJC

If you are looking for something to occupy your time this weekend, you have some choices in northeast Johnson County.

Turkey Creek car show logoThe 14th annual Turkey Creek Car and Motorcycle show will be held Saturday in Merriam from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – rain or shine. The show, which will be held at the Merriam Marketplace at 5740 Merriam Drive, could have up to 300 entries. The show will feature a Motorcycle Alley area, food and door prizes. If you head to the show, just remember that this is also the first weekend for IKEA, so plan your route accordingly.

If cars, trucks and motorcycles are not for you, then you can head over to Roeland Park Saturday morning where you can be part of the Art Scavenger Hunt sponsored by the Roeland Park Arts Committee. You start by registering at city hall between 9:30 and 10:15 a.m. There you will get a passport and set out to find art in the city. At each art location your passport will be stamped. The individuals or groups with the most stamps will be eligible for prizes. The hunt finishes at R Park, 55th and Juniper, around 11:30 a.m.

And don’t forget the Mission Police Department open house runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the police department, which is located south of city hall on Woodson.

Before or after you work your way through all of those events, there is still the Westwood city-wide garage sale if you are in the mood for bargains.
