Info for 2015 Celebrations
City of Leawood 4th of July Celebration in the Park and Fireworks Display
Once again this year, barring a rain delay like we had last year, the City of Leawood will be holding their annual Celebration in the Park. There are several events going all day long including a moonwalk, a train ride, face painters, a show by Lynn O'Brien's Cheer and Dance Camp, a concert from Kansas City band The Shanks, and at 9:45pm there will be a fireworks display. Parking is not allowed in the Leawood Park but parking will be available along Tomahawk Creek Parkway.
Overland Park 4th of July Celebration and Fireworks Display at Corporate Woods
The 4th of July fun starts in Overland Park at Corporate Woods at 4pm with beer, food and live music. We have a special treat this year as Congressman Kevin Yoder (R) will be opening the fireworks show with a welcome speech. Yoder was recently elected to Congress - congratulations Kevin! The more republicans we can pack in there the better, let's get out of this welfare based political path that Obama is trying to lead us down. There is some old people band playing and then the fireworks begin at 9:30pm!
Riverfest Kansas City Fireworks Display on July 3rd
Can't wait until Monday for fireworks? No problem, head down to the Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park for carnival rides, food, drink and live music from Brody Buster and other Kansas City bands. The festival will be running on July 3rd and July 4th from 1pm - 11pm. Fireworks will be launched on both Sunday night and on Monday night around 9:30pm. Fireworks displays will light up the Kansas City skyline! So if you're in downtown Kansas City, or at The Power and Light District, you will be in for a fiery, booming treat.
Worlds of Fun Fireworks Show July 3rd and 4th
Ugh, our poor sad amusement park, with duct tape on the roller coasters and all, will be holding their annual fireworks display on July 3rd and July 4th at 10pm. Kansas City needs to build a new amusement park closer to the Southwest side of the city, where the money is, possibly near Stilwell. Worlds of Fun is jammed so far into white trash-ville, that it is fighting for it's life to stay open each year.
Parkville, Missouri 4th of July Fireworks Festival
Due to flooding, it appears that this year's fireworks display in Parkville will be cancelled. Hopefully the flood takes the Parkville Police station under water - those guys are complete assholes. Fuck Parkville anyway. We're going to be doing a follow up story on the topic of small towns with corrupt police departments soon so come back and see us :)
We will be enjoying the double delight of watching the Overland Park Corporate Woods fireworks show, and then turning our chairs slightly to watch the nearby Leawood fireworks show that immediately follows at 9:45pm from our secret spot that we will not post here. Happy 4th of July Kansas City!
