Summer music and activities are returning to the Kansas Statehouse starting June 12 with the start of South Steps Fridays.
Organized by the Department of Administration, the events are designed to jumpstart the weekend with music, information booths and history on the South Steps of the recently renovated Kansas Statehouse. Events will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
State agencies and Topeka-area organizations have been invited to come out and set up booths on the South Steps of the Statehouse. Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch with them to dine in the shade of the Statehouse lawn. Food vendors will also be parked along 10th Street, south of the Statehouse.
KU Jazz Combo I is scheduled to come out to perform. Their performance is sponsored by Reach Out Kansas, Inc. and University of Kansas School of Music.
Organizations participating in June include the Kansas State Library, Audio Reader, Visit Topeka, the Lecompton Historical Society, Friends of the Kaw and the Department of Transportation.
