Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone in Kansas City! Just dropped in and saw this article about the Memorial Day concert at Union Station and I work at Union Station and wanted to welcome everyone to come out for a stellar concert!

We went to the Memorial Day Weekend concert at Union Station last year and it was incredible. We love the symphony and are looking forward to seeing them perform again at the concert this year. Union Station is a great place to take the family (we have 3 kids and they love it as well) since the kids are off of school for Memorial Day Weekend.

You have to check out the Jiggle Jam if you are bringing the tots, it is a lot of fun. We went there last memorial day weekend and had a blast (for the adults, there is a bar inside Union Station that has Boulevard). Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone and let's try to remember our fallen heroes and the reason that we're all off work tomorrow!
