PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and first lady Linda Daugaard are inviting families to an Easter egg hunt at the governor’s mansion in Pierre.

Children up to age 12 can participate in the event Sunday on the governor’s residence lawn. The 62nd Annual Elks Easter Egg Hunt is sponsored by the Pierre Elks.

Egg hunt chairman Steve Wegman estimates that up to 1,500 children participate each year. Wegman calls the hunt the oldest and largest family event in the state of South Dakota.

The governor says he and his wife are “happy to have the opportunity to continue the tradition.”

The event is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. CT.
