Turner Days

Two "very full" days of a parade, food, live music, games and craft booths will entertain folks who attend the festival. It will include a tractor pull and a petting zoo. 2nd weekend in October.

A parade will be held at Pierson Park. It will proceed from 55th to Metropolitan, then to Steineger Drive by the baseball stadium and back along 55th to finish at Inland Drive.

Turner was a community with no official name from 1856 until 1859. When the first post office was established in 1859, it was dubbed "Farmer." In 1879, it was renamed Turner. "There was a railroad yard in the Argentine; and it sent railroad cars to the Farmer train platform to turn around," "'Take 'er down and turn 'er around,' they�d say. That's the most likely way that Turner was named.

That circular platform was in front of the train station that stood on Kansas at 55th, in Turner's main downtown area. Turner was annexed by Kansas City, Kansas, between late 1965 and early 1966; but the name stuck.
