LIGHT UP YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON AT CITY LIGHTS
LIGHT UP YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON AT CITY LIGHTS

Welcome in the holiday season in Downtown Kansas City next week.

City Lights, the annual Downtown holiday lighting ceremony, is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 at Barney Allis Plaza, 12th and Wyandotte. The Christmas lighting display encompasses Barney Allis Plaza and several nearby buildings including the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, which features spectacular computer-generated holiday images across its 22-story façade.

Fox 4 meteorologist Mike Thompson will emcee the event, which will also feature entertainment by the Raymore-Peculiar High School marching band and a special appearance by Santa Claus!

Complimentary refreshments, including Christmas cookies, hot chocolate and coffee provided by the Roasterie will be served at Barney Allis Plaza prior to the ceremony, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

City Lights, sponsored by The Salvation Army, the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, the Downtown Council and Fox 4 TV, is the official kickoff of The Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Campaign, which raises money to fund Salvation Army programs year-round. These programs include food pantries in eight community centers across the metropolitan area, emergency rent and utility assistance, affordable day care for children of low-income families, a children’s shelter for abused and neglected children, alcohol and drug abuse treatment programs, senior programs and visitation, homeless shelters and transitional housing and prison correctional programs.
