"Walnut Valley" because the river that was a dozen feet deep in the campground last year - at about the time people started to arrive - is the Walnut River.

(Actually, it's one of at least 17 "Walnut Rivers" in the US, but it's the one in Kansas.)

Winfield is also known in some circles as the "Crayola Capitol" and has been where all those pretty Crayola colors are reputed to come from, or so I've been told.
