2012 Plaza Lighting Ceremony Guide

The 83rd annual KCPL Plaza Lighting Ceremony will take place tonight at a new Plaza location – on Nichols Road and Pennsylvania near the Brio Tuscan Grille and Burberry. The stage will be located on Nichols Road, west of Pennsylvania facing east. The weather is going to be nice and warm this year for a change, as long as it stays dry.

This new location will feature a larger gathering area, allowing more Kansas City residents to get a great view of the stage and the flip of the switch. There will still be the normal celebrations in other areas of the plaza, including the fireworks on the roof of The Intercontinental Hotel which is always incredible. They will also be doing a remote broadcast of the action on the main stage from the pool area at The Intercontinental on the plaza.

Sporting Kansas City players Kei Kamara, Jimmy Nielsen and Matt Besler will flip the switch at 6:50 p.m. from the ceremony stage.

Below is the full schedule of events:

5:00 – 6:00 p.m.: Pre-show performances and prizes.

6:00 - 7:00 p.m.: KCPL Plaza Lighting Ceremony.

6:50 p.m.: Flip of the switch by Sporting Kansas City players followed by fireworks over Nichols & Broadway.

7:00 – 8:00 p.m.: Post-Ceremony Concert featuring Kansas City Band - The Elders.

For those who are unable to attend the festivities down at the Plaza, 41 Action News will be broadcasting the ceremony live.
