Noon: Judging/Purchase Award: $250 sponsored by the Riverfront Heritage Trail

Our second Quick Paint during Walktober features a segment of the Riverfront Heritage Trail that contains two memorials to historic and critical events, the route enslaved people escaping took to reach the Free State of Kansas and first tracks of a frontier railroad that would eventually place Kansas City in the center of commerce. The trail west has been named Freedom Trail because it was such a critical route for enslaved people trying to find safety in the Free State of Kansas.
