Among the Kansas Day celebrations taking place around Basehor on Saturday will be events at the Basehor Historical Museum and Holy-Field Vineyard and Winery.

The museum, 2812 N. 155th St., will celebrate the state's sesquicentennial during its regular Saturday hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors will be asked to give one word to describe why they love the state of Kansas, and responses will be displayed on a wall at the museum. Guests can also register to win prizes, and the museum will serve refreshments.
