Whether you're ready for the holidays or not, they are upon us. Kansas City will be kicking off the festivities with the Plaza Lighting Ceremony 2011 on Thursday, November 24th at the Country Club Plaza.
Plaza Lighting 2015 Ceremony Info
The fun kicks off at 5:15pm with some pre-show entertainment from the same group of kids who performed last year. The lackluster "american idol / glee" style of performance was pretty lame and the only bright spot in the line up was the Dave Stephens Swing Orchestra who will unfortunately not be performing this year. The plaza lighting ceremony 2011 will be hosted by KSHB Chief Meteorologist Gary Lezak and his faithful dog Stormy. The actual switch to turn on the plaza lights will be thrown by Eric Stonestreet from the TV show "Modern Family" who is a Kansas City native who struck out to find fame in show business.
2011 marks the 82nd annual plaza lighting ceremony and the weather is supposed to cooperate, looking at a mild 45 degrees or so and dry. There will be over 300,000 people in attendance to watch the plaza lighting ceremony 2011 so you should try to get down to the plaza early enough to find a good place to park. We have provided a plaza lighting ceremony parking map below for your convenience:
There will be two fireworks displays this year. As usual, there will be a fireworks display on top of the Intercontinental Hotel and another fireworks display from behind the main stage in front of Halls. Have a good time welcoming in the holiday season at this year's plaza lighting ceremony 2011 and be safe driving!
