It is time to celebrate Kansas’ birthday and the Smoky Hill Museum will be doing it up right. Bring the whole family and enjoy the fun at the free Kansas Day celebration, February 1, from 1:00-3:00 pm.

Try your hand at a few activities pioneers would have done, like churning butter or shelling corn. There will also be two new activities. Jack Crispin, from the Crispin Drugstore Museum, will be showing and talking about historical pharmaceutical items. Patti Fiedler will also be on hand demonstrating soap making on the prairie. Samples will be available to take with you as supplies last.

Also, enjoy the make and take crafts and birthday cake, sign up for door prizes and more. Everything’s free, at the Kansas Day Open House February 1, from 1:00-3:00 pm.
