Shawnee Mission Park Observation Tower came down today

After 55 years of service, the Shawnee Mission Park Observation Tower came down today. I, like many of you have some great memories of taking the kids to the top of this tower. There may be some of you that have other types of memories if you grew up around the tower but we won’t talk about that :). The good news is they are currently building a new tower at Kill Creek Park just south of De Soto that will open this fall. There are also plans to build a new tower in Shawnee Mission Park but not for a few years.

Which annual KC event reigns supreme?

Plaza Lights – Jurgita Lukoseviciene

Those of us that are lucky enough to call Kansas City our home know that we have some great events to look forward to each year. We thought it would be fun to find out just which of these events reigns supreme in the hearts of Kansas City locals. Vote and share with your friends if you want your event to win. The Plaza Lights are out to an early lead. 🙂
