Homes For Rent

Kansas City Thanksgiving Weekend Fun!

This is one of the BEST areas to live in during Thanksgiving weekend! From Blue Springs, the heart of Kansas City is only a 20 minute drive or so – and well worth it for some exciting things taking place this weekend! As a Kansas City native myself, I love encouraging people in my Blue Springs rental homes to get out and have some fun this holiday weekend! Here are a few upcoming fun events for this weekend:

1. Kansas City Plaza Lighting Ceremony

Each year, the KC Plaza hosts a lighting ceremony the night of Thanksgiving. This year, it’s the 82nd celebration of the Plaza lights! You can tune in and watch the ceremony on channel 41 (KSHB) this year, or head on down to the Plaza and watch it yourself! Special guest Eric Stonestreet … or “Cam” from Modern Family will be turning on the lights. The ceremony runs from 6-7pm.

2. Black Friday Shopping at Adams Dairy Landing

We’ve got amazing stores in Blue Springs, perfect for Black Friday shopping! From Target, Michaels, Kohls, Gap Factory Outlet, Maurices and more – we have everything you need to get your Christmas list crossed off! Plus, dine at Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, Planet Sub or another fun restaurant while you’re out. Blue Springs, MO has great shopping, and some great deals to be found!

3. Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting

If you don’t make it down to the Plaza on the evening of Thanksgiving, you’re in luck! The next day, Fri. Nov. 25, is the Mayor’s Christmas Tree lighting at Crown Center. Grab some hot chocolate and join in with the crowd as the sky lights up with twinkling flow from the 100-foot tree.

4. Missouri Mavericks Hockey

The Missouri Mavericks are in their 3rd season and playing at the Independence Events Center – just minutes away for some our Kansas City Rental homes! They play on Fri., Nov 25. Nothing puts you in the mood for Christmas like a little ice hockey!

5. Border Showdown – MU vs KU at Arrowhead

Each year, this is a favorite among Kansas City residents, who have a fierce rivalry when it comes to MU vs. KU. Attend the game at Arrowhead this year on Sat., Nov. 26 where you’ll watch the 5th annual head-to-head match-up. After all of the Big 10 controversy this year, this is guaranteed to be a great game!
