About the walk


This is our Lights on the Plaza event as a 6 week seasonal event. The lights on the Plaza, get turned on Thanksgiving evening, come out and enjoy them at your leisure. Check our website to find dates and times for guided group walks available both in daylight or dusk.


This walk takes you through the Country Club Plaza and surrounding areas. The Plaza is a virtual outdoor museum of Spanish architecture and European art. J. C. Nichols developed the area in 1922 as the nation's first suburban shopping center, in 1930 the first official Plaza Lighting ceremony took place. Walkers, while marveling at the beautiful Christmas lights, will have an opportunity to view the 130 foot tall reproduction of the Giralda Tower of Seville. Another Plaza wonder on the route is the beautiful Seville Light and Diana, one of the largest man-made waterfalls in the nation. Kansas City is second only to Rome in the number of fountains. Walkers have the option to walk completely in daylight, partly in daylight and partly in dusk, or to do the entire walk in the dust and dark.
