Topeka Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and first lady Mary Brownback have announced the date for the annual children's Easter egg hunt at Cedar Crest, their official residence.
The event will take place at 11 a.m. on April 7, the Saturday before Easter. It's open to children ages 1 through 9, and a local radio station plans to broadcast live from the hunt and give away a bicycle.
Sponsors include the National Guard, the Kansas Capitol Police, Russell Stover Candies Inc., and Security Benefit Group Inc., which has its headquarters about three-quarters of a mile to the west.
Shuttles from Security Benefit's parking lot to Cedar Crest will begin at 9 a.m.
The governor's office says if there's rain, all candy will be donated to a local children's charity.
