    there are so many Parades throughout the year. Go see them in Downtown Topeka. There you can also visit the capital building which is very pretty from the outside and has a lot of cultural stuff inside!
    Also, you must go to the TCT (Topeka Civic Theater)!! It's absolutely wonderfull there! They have Musicals, Drama's...throughout the year. I often went there on the weekends, it's really a lot of fun!

    The picture on the left was taken on St. Patrick's Day in Downtown Topeka!

    The Kansas Expocentre is a large building where many events are held.
    All kinds of events are held there. I have been to the Expocentre too see a circus, bid on llamas at auction, look at new kinds of farm equipment, and see home improvements exhibited by hundreds of retailers.

    This is another picture inside the Kansas State Capitol. The mural in the background through the arch is probably the most famous of them all in the capitol building. It depicts John Brown holding a bible in one hand and a rifle in the other. He stands over the bodies of a confederate and a union soldier. In the background are flames. The mural reminds us of a time when my state was known as Bleeding Kansas and men faught and killed one another before and during the Civil War here.

    Kansas History Museum is a large museum that will take some time to enjoy. There are many exhibits inside and some of them are quite large. There is a train inside if that will give you an idea how big the place is.
    There is a nature and hiking trail out side of the building as well.

    Gage Park is one of many parks in Topeka. I think it is the biggest park with the most to offer. The Topeka Zoological Park is there. In warmer months there is a mini-train and carousel to ride. Reinish Rose Garden is fragrant and has many beautiful roses. I've added photos to a travelogue that were taken in the zoo.
    Rose Garden, Mini-Train, and Zoo all in one Park.

    Highlight of visit to the state capitol building is the artwork found on the second floor, including John Stuart Curry's memorable mural featuring the militant slavery abolitionist, John Brown.
