Annual Governor's Easter Egg Hunt

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) Governor Laura Kelly invited the public to her home on Saturday to hunt Easter eggs.

The Governor's Easter egg hunt happens each year on the Saturday before Palm Sunday.

This year Mars company donated the candy inside each egg, and Michaels Craft Store supplied the Easter eggs.

Kids ages 1-9 years old could participate in the hunt, and were split into four different age groups.

Along with hunting Easter eggs, families could take pictures with the Easter bunny, Wiley Coyote from the National Guard, and Radar the Patrol Dog.

The Sneed family of Topeka said this about why they enjoy the event, "We came out today because we love the community events, and this is a really great one. It's a beautiful day, it's a chance to come out to the Governor's mansion and take a look at the beautiful house and let the kids have a little fun for the holidays."

Topeka High School students also volunteered to help organize the event and fill Easter eggs.
