Best KCMO Lights


You can spend the entire month of December touring KCMO and checking out the holiday lights to declare one the ultimate winner. At The City Market, you’ll experience a complete transformation into Whoville Holidays, and keep an eye out for the Grinch. Activities for children abound, and a Cindy Lou Who lookalike contest always draws a crowd. It’s a must for Dr. Seuss lovers.

Zona Rosa is where you’ll find popular and traditional holiday decorations. The Northern Lights are enormous lit crowns that sparkle from dusk ‘til dawn and help light your way as you finish up last minute shopping. Slip into the real igloo to experience life at the North Pole, or take the kids to visit the holiday fairy princess.

Twinkling Lights

Perhaps the best known destination, Country Club Plaza, kicks off the season on Thanksgiving night and battles other areas to be the brightest of all. Every single store is outlined in lights, as is the dome and tower. The famed KCP&L Plaza Lights are a holiday tradition you can’t miss.

At The Crown Center District, get treated to the 100-foot Christmas tree decorated and lit. It’s one of the tallest in the country! Next, head to the Holiday Train Village at nearby Union Station to discover a plethora of miniature trains also decked out for the holidays.
