Plaza Lights Kansas City Country Club Plaza

Updated on January 21, 2015

Plaza Lights On The Kansas City Country Club Plaza

A visit to The Kansas City Country Club Plaza always has a touch of magic in it with it's European flavor, it's fountains, and horse drawn carriages,. The Plaza is a major landmark in Kansas City, a premier shopping district and a place for many festivals and events, including the Plaza Art Fair and the Dragon Boat Races, but the most loved event is the Plaza Lighting Ceremony which happens every year on Thanksgiving Evening.

The Country Club Plaza Holiday Lights

My favorite time of year to visit the Plaza is when the Christmas lights are on from Thanksgiving Day through January 17.

The Most Important Thing

"The basic design of the Country Club Plaza reflects classic European influences, especially those of Seville, Spain, with major architectural reproductions, such as a half-sized Giralda Tower of Seville (the tallest building in the Plaza)."

      Thanks for the memories. When I lived in KC, I worked on Main Street just up from the Plaza...saw the beautiful lights every night as I left work. Blessed and added to my December Memories.

      Hi K.C. !!! I used to live in Kansas City. Now I'm in Sitka, AK. I have a spectacular view of Mt. Edgecumbe from my workplace. It may get in the 40's today. Right now, the sky is 90% clear. But, like K.C. it can change on a dime. And yes, I miss the Plaza !
