Ten Things Everyone in Sedalia Knows
There are over 20,000 residents in Sedalia, Missouri. Everyone who lives here, and anyone that is from here, knows these ten things about Sedalia.
- If you keep asking for Target to open a Sedalia store, it just might happen...one day....maybe. But it hasn't happened yet.
- If you listen to the radio long enough, you'll get the Seize the Deal jingle stuck in your head.
- There's no urgency to go out of your way to see up-and-coming musicians in the city. If they're any good, they'll eventually end up at the fair.
- Fireworks are fun on July 4, but they're also great on Thanksgiving!
- Text messages received between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. are usually from the sheriff's office and most likely have something to do with the weather.
- You can't catch a train at the Katy Depot. The Katy Depot hasn't had a passenger train pass through since 1958. You might have better luck with Amtrak.
- There's almost always something going on at the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Might be a rodeo, might be a haunted hayride, the fairgrounds have even hosted the Tough Mudder a couple times.
- Sedalia takes its fine art seriously. The Liberty Center has undergone extensive renovations, the symphony is the "the second oldest continuous symphony in the state," and Sedalia even has a museum of contemporary art.
- It is perfectly acceptable to root for both the Royals and the Cardinals. Doesn't everybody?
- No map is required to find the food stands during the Missouri State Fair. You know the route by heart.
