Fireworks in Kansas City, Leawood, Overland Park July 4th, 2014 by KCMB News Kansas City

The skies will be popping and sparkling this July 4th, 2014 with several great fireworks displays in Kansas City, Leawood and Overland Park. As we tell everyone every year, we have our secret spot but we cannot divulge it's location because the best part about our spot is that it is not crowded and getting in and out of there is quite easy indeed.

Kansas City Fireworks Displays

Worlds of Fun - Celebrate America
Not only will Worlds of Fun have fireworks on the 4th of July 2014, but they are going to be doing fireworks EVERY weekend in July! That's right kids, there will be fireworks displays on July 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th. The Worlds of Fun fireworks will start at 10pm each of those nights and the twilight admission will be $36.99.

Fireworks at the K - Kauffman Stadium
If anyone knows whether or not they will have fireworks at the K this year let us know. We know that the Kansas City Royals will be in Cleveland that night so there will not be a baseball game at the K. Most stadiums will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig's speech. Leave comments below if you know anything…

Kansas City River Market Fireworks 2014
The River Market has nothing on their calendar about a fireworks display this year.

Leawood Fireworks Display - 2014 4th of July Celebration

Once again this year the Leawood Park at Tomahawk Creek will be blasting off their fireworks display immediately following the Corporate Woods fireworks show. They will be making a day of it at Leawood Park, offering games, live music, rides and food vendors beginning at 5pm. There will be all access passes for children for the rides for $5. The Leawood fireworks display will begin at 9:45pm.

Overland Park Fireworks Display - Star Spangled Spectacular 2014

The annual Corporate Woods fireworks display "Star Spangled Spectacular 2014" will be the biggest thing going when it comes to Overland Park fireworks displays. The traffic jam (ahem) we mean the event will be held at Corporate Woods located at College and Antioch and begin at 4pm with food and beverage vendors, a children's play pavilion and inflatables. At 5:45pm there will be a country band followed by a 55 piece American Legion Band performing patriotic songs. Actor James Wright will be welcoming everyone at 8pm followed by the National Anthem being performed by Lindsey McKee from the Quality Hill Playhouse in Overland Park. The Star Spangled Spectacular 2014 fireworks will commence at 9:30pm. Don't be in a hurry to get out of there immediately after the fireworks because it will be traffic jam mayhem, it's best to just be patient and wait to try to leave until it clears out a little bit.

Have fun and enjoy your 4th of July Kansas City!

Firework Displays Overland Park, Leawood, Kansas City Fireworks 2013

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

The Star Spangled Spectacular is the biggest and most popular firework displays in Overland Park, boasting over 100,000 in attendance.  The event opens at 4pm with inflatable games for the kids and beer for mom and dad. At 5:45pm the 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

Other shows include Riverfest, located at Berkley Park which costs $5 and goes from 5pm - 11pm - there is the Jackson County Fireworks Display to be held at Longview Lake, admission is free and it goes from 6pm - 10pm - also don't forget that World's of Fun will be doing a fireworks display on both July 4th AND on July 5th starting at 10pm so if you can't make it out to any of the fireworks shows on the 4th, you can still enjoy fireworks on Friday night at World's of Fun.

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!

Fireworks in Overland Park, Leawood, Kansas City Displays

Fireworks displays in Overland Park, Leawood, Kansas City and more for July 3rd and 4th:

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!
