It’s still a couple of weeks until a jolly fat guy in a red velvet suit shimmies down a gazillion chimneys, but until then you, your children and your out-of-town guests will find plenty of holiday activities to keep everyone entertained and (in the case of the tykes) distracted.
Besides dropping in on Mr. Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol” (at left), you and yours can go on a luminary walk, explore a chef-created gingerbread village, marvel at a jazzy reinterpretation of “The Nutcracker” and hang with the Grinch and Kansas City’s Fairy Princess. Not to mention Mr. and Mrs. Claus, who will be making so many appearances around town we wonder what those North Pole elves are getting up to.
Here’s a sampler of kid-friendly, holiday-themed events around Kansas City.
Pretty lights (besides the Plaza)
Community events (featuring Santa!)
Music and dance
This and that
