TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials are marking the 153rd anniversary of statehood with a dedication of the newly renovated Capitol in Topeka.

Hundreds of schoolchildren were joining Gov. Sam Brownback, legislators and other dignitaries for Wednesday's Kansas Day festivities.

The 13-year renovation cost nearly $330 million and included new ventilation and electrical systems, replacement of the roof and dome, and construction of a visitor center. The project was carried out in phases and financed with bonds.

Other Kansas Day events were taking place at the Kansas Museum of History located on the west edge of Topeka.
