What’s Happening in KC this Weekend

Posted September 11, 2017 9:47pm by Jane

If fall sports haven’t overtaken your schedule, like they have in our house, there are plenty of fun things happening in and around KC this weekend! Here are a few of our top picks:

  • Get a blast from the past with KC Renaissance Festival. I don’t know if it’s the nostalgia of going with my family when I was a kid, but I still love traveling back in time to experience jousting knights, jesters, music, magic and, of course, a giant roasted turkey leg. It’s open weekends through Oct. 15 at 633 N 130th Street, Bonner Springs, KS 66012
  • Enjoy a little Grrrl Power, a la Disney, with Disney on Ice: Dream Big. This year’s show lets your little ones experience the empowering tales of Disney’s most courageous leading ladies – beautifully done on ice skates. The show runs Sept. 14-17 at Sprint Center. Check for a variety of times and ticket prices.
  • Get out and enjoy nature, with some modern amenities at JoCo Parks & Rec’s Park Palooza this Sunday, September 17. The first-ever Park Palooza is free and features live music, entertainment, activities, food, and giant kites. We’re excited about seeing Mr. Stinky Feet, Drum Safari, and Ernie Miller animal close-ups while we’re there. The fun happens 11am-5pm at The Theatre in the Park, 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee, KS.
  • Shawnee Town Arts & Crafts Fair & Fall Festival: This Saturday, Sept. 16, join the folks in Shawnee to enjoy tons of craft booths, food vendors, free kids activities and play areas, and live music throughout the day. 9am-4pm at Shawnee Town, 11501 W. 57th Street, Shawnee, KS 66203. Best of all, admission price is just $1/person!
  • Want to get your kids moving, but don’t know where to start? Then it might be time to Hike Swope Park with a Naturalist. Learn about nature on this free, guided hike, and your kids just might ask you to take them back for the next outing! Meet at 10am at Lakeside Nature Center in Swope Park, 4701 E. Gregory Blvd., KCMO to begin your hike this Saturday, Sept. 16.
  • Paradise Park’s Football Fundays are back in action! In my house, this sometimes turns into a Sunday afternoon break for me while my husband takes the kids to Paradise Park. The kids have a great time while dad watches the games on one of 15 TVs mounted throughout the Park. If sports really are keeping you busy right now, Football Fundays runs every Sunday through SuperBowl Sunday, so there’s always time to catch this later.
