MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas Day celebrations got underway this morning in Manhattan at the Flint Hills Discovery Center.
Hundreds of local children had the opportunity to explore the Discovery Center and its exhibits, as well as take part in educational activities to learn more about the history and culture of Kansas.
"I think anytime you can make history relevant to today, especially how it reflects to the flint hills, the eco-region that stretches across those 22 counties and that four million acres, that last stand of the tallgrass prairie; that’s important to us," said Discovery Center Director Fred Goss. "It also reinforces the fact that the flint hills is unique to Kansas and northern Oklahoma, but the majority of it resides here in the sunflower state."
The party concluded with cupcakes for the children to commemorate Kansas’s 158th birthday.
