BUHLER, Kan. — Buhler, Kansas will be a pretty hopping place on April 1, from pancake feeds to vendor events to Easter activities.  

Begin the morning with a Pancake Feed fundraiser by Sunny’s Café at Sunshine Meadows Retirement Community from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. 

According to Sunshine Meadows’ Food Service Director and Chef Eric Beye, the funds raised from the Pancake Feed will be used to remodel Sunny’s Café's dish room.  

“It’s terribly outdated and we’ve got to get some things done,” Beye said.  

Sunshine Meadows has been talking about updating the dish room since pre-COVID.  

The Pancake Feed will consist of pancakes and sausage. Entry is $5 for children and $8 adults.  

Sunny’s Café is located at 400 S Buhler Road in Buhler.  

Following the Pancake Feed at 10 a.m. children from first to sixth grade, are invited to participate in Buhler’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.  

The Easter Egg Hunt will take place at the baseball diamonds at Wheatland Park.  

“The 4-H kids stuff all the eggs for us, so there will be over 3,000 eggs out there,” Shelly Bartel of Bartel Kitchen and Bath and Buhler Chamber of Commerce president said.  

The Easter Egg Hunt is sponsored by the Buhler Chamber of Commerce.  

At the same time as the Easter Egg Hunt, the Hello Spring Vendor Event will be taking place at Bartel Kitchen and Bath.

“Basically, we have about 10 different vendors. We have craft vendors, we have direct marketing,” Bartel said. “We have Tastefully Simple, Color Street, just a bunch of vendors. We have somebody bringing baked goods.”  

The Hello Spring Vendor Event will run until 2 p.m.

On April 1, those who stick around Bartel Kitchen and Bath with their kids or are coming from the Easter Egg Hunt, starting at 10:30 a.m. can take pictures of their kids with the Easter Bunny.  

“They get done at the Easter Egg Hunt and they come on down here,” Bartel said. “I'd say in the past, we’ve had between 150 and 200 kids come through.”  

The event will last until 1:30 p.m.

Bartel Kitchen and Bath is located at 207 N. Main St. in Buhler.  

Then beginning at 1 p.m. in the afternoon, Buhler’s “newish” bed and breakfast, the Wildflower Inn, will be hosting a Spring Market.  

“The Spring Market, basically there's going to be different spring-like items that are going to be for sale,” Sara Nowlan with Sunshine Meadows said. “We will have a couple of different vendors." 

Sunshine Meadows now owns the Wildflower Inn which was opened in the 1940s, and its last owners were Nowlan’s parents.  

Vendors include Propagated Plants and Philanthropy, Owl’s Lavender Patch, and LuvBlossoms Flowers by Tai, as well as a few farm-fresh egg vendors.  

Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to have their photos taken for free with small, feathery chicks.  

The Spring Market at Wildflower Inn, located at 406 W. Ave. A in Buhler, is come and go until 4 p.m. on April 1.
