— Children danced and chased each other around the banquet hall at Holy Field Vineyard & Winery Sunday afternoon as the local landmark hosted its annual Kansas Day celebration.

The Lawrence band Ragtime X 2 played accordion and tuba while attendees of the festivities sang "Home on the Range," while enjoying the locally made wine.

Owners of Holy Field, Les & Michelle Meyer are looking forward to another year of producing wine and said the bitter cold temperatures this winter haven't appeared to harm their vineyard.

Kansas Day, officially celebrated in the state on Wednesday, commemorates the admission of the state as the 34th in the Union on January 29, 1861.
