It's the Weekend Update, Live From...Kansas!

Have you ever heard that saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Well, I can’t give any validity to this assessment as I don’t have a medical license, but what I can verify to be true is the well-known proverb, “A weekend of Topeka events makes the humdrum of the workweek relent.” Because of this, we’ve gathered up the best and brightest events happening this weekend in Topeka for you to enjoy.

Evening as a child

Major Convention FacilitiesEvening as a Child is a special event to raise funds needed to support services for people with disabilities that will help ensure that they have opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. To do this, the event lets adults reminisce on the things that made adolescence so special. There will be games and activities, wine and craft beer boards (not necessarily for your inner child, but great for your 21+ self), and silent and live auctions.

This magnificent evening is sure to leave you in a state of child-like wonder while also helping people in need, so grab some friends and head over there!
