WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Community pride, that’s what nearly a thousand Wichitans celebrated all day long as part of the love your community event.
City leaders, law enforcement, students and more got together in the Planeview neighborhood for a big block party.
It started with a neighborhood clean-up, then a parade.
Those who have lived in the area all their life say it’s a chance to show the city there are good people in all areas of Wichita.
“I grew up here. Most people who grew up here realize it’s a family community,” Misty Loyd, a Planeview resident, said. “Most people knew people back then on every block whether they were blood relative or not.”
Organizers say they wanted to give residents the chance to have open conversations with police officers and other leaders in the area.
