A report from KMBC 9 News confirms that the long standing Thanksgiving tradition will continue this year but as a broadcast only event on KMBC 9. The hour long production will begin at 6 pm on Thanksgiving night.

No word yet on who will be the honorary light flipper. Plaza restaurants may be open but the shops will be closed and no large crowds will be allowed to gather. More updates are to be released as the date draws nearer.
