Thanksgiving 2017 Events in Blue Springs & Kansas City

Autumn is in full swing and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Here are some great local Kansas City events to get you into the holiday mood. 


Thanksgiving Day Run

Get Thanksgiving in Kansas City started early with one of two runs!

The Thanksgiving Ward Parkway Run features 5K and 10K courses at the Ward Parkway Center and includes a Tiny Turkey Trot for young runners.

The Thanksgiving Day 5K and Stroll at the Sprint Campus in Overland Park will be showing "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" for children before and after the race.

Both races start at 9:00 am on Thanksgiving morning and are great ways to burn calories before a Turkey Day feast!

This annual tradition begins on Thanksgiving night with pre-show activities at 5:00 pm, followed by the main show at 6:00 pm. At 6:45 pm, they throw the switch and the Plaza fills with light.
