Kansas City Mardi Gras Festival

The Power & Light District invites you to help transform KC Live! into Bourbon Street on Saturday, March 1st for the annual Kansas City Mardi Gras Festival. Known for throwing the largest Mardi Gras celebration in the Kansas City area, the KC Live Block transforms into a New Orleans-themed street festival with popular street performers including fire jugglers, stilt walkers, unicyclists, fortune tellers, musicians, human statues, mimes and more – this is a party you won’t want to miss! The festival includes a variety of contests including crawfish eating, beignet eating and Most Beads – all with cash prizes. Plus, a Cajun food fair with yummy jambalaya, beneits and more. Did we mention it’s free?! Admission to the New Orleans-themed Kansas City Mardi Gras party is free from 8 to 11 p.m. You can also upgrade to an all-inclusive, 3 hour party from 8-11 p.m. The Mardi Gras Bar Crawl is only $25-35 (depending on your selection of well vs call beverages) and you get endless Captain Morgan Hurricanes, cocktails, beers and cover all night at 15 bars including the KC Live! Block – a deal fit for a king!

Big 12 Basketball is Near!

Anyone else excited for Spring and warm weather? When Spring comes I think Big 12 basketball!  The energy, excitement and cheers make me happy. KC Live! becomes the basketball epicenter March 12-15. With several teams in the top 25 rankings I look forward to the great match-ups that will ensue. With clients, friends and families gathering to watch the games, eating and drinking, and checking out the entertainment on the KC Live! stage- the atmosphere and good times make for lasting memories. Cheers to spring and the Big 12 tournament!
