Celebrate Christmas in Kansas City

Spending your Christmas in Kansas City?  There’s plenty to do this holiday season in KC, including some great traditional events and some new activities as well.  Here are just a few of the holiday events going on this winter in Kansas City.

Christmas in the Park at Longview Lake is a great activity that involves little cost and a lot of fun.  Load up the car and head out to Longview Lake, where you’ll see over 300,000 Christmas lights and more than 175 animated figures.  It may take you a couple of hours to drive through the park due to the slow moving traffic, but it’s well worth it.  Bring along some hot chocolate and some snacks for the kids to really make the trip fun.  Don’t forget the holiday music, either!

Want to go ice skating this holiday season?  Head over to Crown Center Ice Terrace, while offers ice skating from November through March.  The terrace also offers a great view of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree.  Admission is $6, but those under 4 or over 60 get in for free.  Skate rental is only $3, but you can bring your own if you like.  If you go on Tuesday after 5 p.m., you can take advantage of the two-for-one special and get two admissions for the price of one.  Note that this doesn’t include skate rental.

While you’re at the Crown Center, you might want to visit Santa’s Gingerbread Village.  This entire village is made out of edible gingerbread and features a reindeer stable, Santa’s sleigh, the elves dorm, and Santa’s home.  Admission is free, and the village is open during the Crown Center’s regular hours.

For those looking for a holiday show in Kansas City, the Kansas City Repertory Theatre is performing A Christmas Carol through December 26th.  This holiday classic is based on the story by Charles Dickens.

Another great show is The Nutcracker, a traditional Christmas story performed by the Kansas City Ballet.  It will be performed December 18th through the 23th at the Music Hall.  You can purchase tickets through the kcballet.org website.
