2013 looks like it's going to bless us with a great 4th of July night for fireworks displays in Overland Park, Leawood and Kansas City! For the first time in a few years it looks like the rain is going to leave us alone and let us have some great firework displays all around Kansas City, Overland Park and Leawood.
Overland Park Firework Displays
live music starts with a country band, then at 6:45pm the American Legion Band will perform Patriotic music. The show gets rolling at 8pm with the National Anthem, followed by a local Kansas City band, and then finally at 9:40pm they will start the fireworks display. Be prepared for some seriously slow traffic getting out of this event as it usually takes quite awhile for over 100,000 people to clear out of there. It might be best to just walk around and wait it out instead of sitting in your car in parking lot traffic for an hour. Overall, though, this is the best fireworks display in Overland Park.
Leawood Firework Displays
For a more laid back show, you can grab a lawn chair and head over to watch Celebration in the Park, a Leawood Firework Display that is held at Leawood City Park. The fun begins at 5pm with activities for the kids and snacks and drinks for the adults, then at 7:30pm they will have a live Kansas City band, then the firework display in Leawood will start at 9:45pm or pretty much directly after the conclusion of the Overland Park firework display at the Star Spangled Spectacular. It's a nice little "one-two punch" - watch the Overland Park firework display, then turn your chair around and watch the Leawood firework display right after, and if you're clever, you can figure out where to park and sit so that you can see BOTH shows - tricky! We're not going to give that info away, however because that is where WE go to watch both fireworks shows and we don't want a giant crowd :)
Kansas City Fireworks Displays
Whether you are going out to watch 2013 fireworks displays in Overland Park, Leawood or anywhere else in Kansas City, the weather looks like it's going to hold for 2013 for once in a few years so have a great time and be safe. There will be 4th of July DUI checkpoints out for sure so don't drink and drive!
