Children are invited to a fun-filled day at the Mansion

Frankfort, KY - On Saturday, March 19, the lawn of the Kentucky Governor's Mansion will play host to children from across the Commonwealth enjoying a Frankfort first with an "Easter Egg Roll at the Mansion."  The event hosted by Governor Ernie Fletcher and First Lady Glenna Fletcher will begin at 9 a.m.

"The Governor and I are excited to have the children of Kentucky for this very special event at the Governor’s Mansion," First Lady Glenna Fletcher said. "This event is a great way to give our children wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime.”

Children ages three to ten can spend the morning participating in the Easter Egg Roll on the Mansion lawn, decorating eggs and enjoying many other activities.

The Governor and First Lady are also asking for your help to promote literacy by donating a children’s book to be collected and given to a local charity.  “If we can spark at least one child’s interest in reading with these books, then we are giving that child a gift of lifelong learning,” stated Mrs. Fletcher.

Books can be dropped off at any ticket location or at the Mansion on Saturday, March 19.

Tickets are free and the event is open to the public.  Parents must pick up tickets for each child before March 19 at one of the designated locations. Tickets are limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

In Frankfort, tickets are available at both Fifth Third Bank locations and at the downtown Frankfort Tourism Commission or by calling 502-695-4968. You may also email your request to
