Kansas City readies itself as All-Star beautiful town
The Kansas City Star
Kansas City will have an extra dash of sparkle this summer leading up to the All-Star Game.
Everyone can expect the fountains to be gushing and the streets to be super-clean. The town has to look extra special pretty for its guests.
The ribbons and bows on the town are not only for the folks who will travel here for the July 10 baseball game at Kauffman Stadium. Sports fans from throughout the country and, indeed, the world will get a look at Kansas City because of the national TV spotlight that will shine on the town.
Downtown, Westport and the Country Club Plaza, no doubt, will be showcased. But also expect to see the 18th & Vine District with the American Jazz and Negro Leagues museums on television.
To fill time, national TV also may take a look at Swope Park, the Kansas City Zoo and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. In addition, they’ll likely give the world shots of the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and the Sprint Center.
This will be Kansas City’s time to shine. If only it weren’t just for a day.
