POSTED: 02/18/2015
Experience some down-home country cooking as well as some great live entertainment during a mid-March day trip being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

Chicken-N-Pickin is the name of this trip to Walnut, Kan., where travelers will enjoy down-home cooking and great entertainment at the Duling Family Dinner Theatre. Savor their famous pan-fried chicken cooked in a cast-iron skillet and served with homemade fixings. Participants will also experience two hours of entertainment with toe-tapping country and gospel music they’re sure to remember at this unique theater in a remodeled dairy barn.

The bus will leave Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 13, and participants will get back to Antioch Park by 5 p.m. The cost, including transportation, lunch, and the show, is $79 per person.
