    The American Royal Parade

    a tractor is a beautiful thing

    Kansas City is proud of its Cowtown heritage - sort of. The American Royal is the annual Livestock Show and Conference that is held every year in the West Bottoms, next to where the stockyards used to be. Every year there is a parade to honor the American Royal - I believe it is traditionally held on the third weekend of October. It's fun to see horses and tractors and cowboys in the city!

    Celebrate KC - Memorial Day Celebration

    by Jewelslover Written May 31, 2005
    Fireworks Over Liberty Memorial

    We went to a wonderful celebration at the Union Station downtown Kansas City. It was for the Memorial Day holiday. They had the Kansas City Symphony play a patriotic concert, then there were fireworks over Liberty Memorial afterwards. They announced that there were 24,000 people attending the event this year. This was a free performance.

    Check out my Kansas City Travelogues for more pictures of this event.
