Another Rainy Day in Kansas City

Yet another rainy day here in Kansas City did not stop workers from testing the Plaza lights.


Plaza light checker Nov 09



There are thousands of lights which are all turned on simultaneously every Thanksgiving.The lights are strung along the roofline, windows, doors and sometimes architectural dteails of each building on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.

They started stringing the lights in October.


Picture on the right is of workers going up on cherry pickers to get one of the towers.








It's rained every single day since the testing process began.


For those of you unfamiliar with Kansas City, the Country Club Plaza consists basically of the blocks bordered by 46th Ter on the North, Ward Parkway on the South, Jefferson on the West & Baltimore on the East. For some reason, the Google map zoomed in when inserted into this post, so to get the whole picture you'll need to minimize one click.

So they haven't had much of a chance to test the lights yet?  I'm with Liz, look forward to night time pics with lights lit up.

Maria, hope you get some photos of the 'after' when the lights are up and on. I'm sure it will be beautiful :)

Maria--It would be nice if it was atleast snowing rather than raining during the process...I am certain it will be beautiful when it is done.
