2013 Purple Power Play on Poyntz in Downtown Manhattan, KS
Purple Power Play on Poyntz, powered by Briggs Auto is a Manhattan, KS community event for the entire family. Originally created in 1988 by four community volunteers to welcome students back to downtown Manhattan and support the K-State Football team, Purple Power Play on Poyntz has evolved into something more. Today Purple Power Play on Poyntz is open to the entire community. The event is held every year, the days prior to the first home Kansas State WildCat football game. Now one of the largest events in Kansas, with more than 20,000 people in attendance. Purple Power Play on Poyntz will include an inflatable carnival, a pyrotechnics display, and more than 80 vendors.
Where: Poyntz Avenue is currently under construction, as it receives a makeover. For 2013, the event will take place in City Park.
When: Wednesday, August 28th at 6pm and Thursday, August 29th at 6pm.
What: Look forward to live entertainment, inflatables, vendors and so much more! Completed schedule TBA.
