Topeka Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and his wife, Mary, are inviting young children and their families to take part in the annual Easter egg hunt in Topeka.
The hunt takes place April 16 on the grounds of Cedar Crest, the governor's official residence in northwest Topeka. Brownback's office says a free shuttle service from the Security Benefits Group parking lot on 6th Street will begin running at 9 a.m.
The hunt is open to children 1 through 9, who will be divided into age groups. There will also be music, cartoon characters and prize giveaways.
In case of rain, all of the candy will be distributed to Topeka area charities.
