Union Station Holiday Reflections

If keeping warm is a little more your speed, then Holiday Reflections is for you! “This spectacular themed experience fills Union Station’s massive Grand Plaza and features sky-reaching lights, dozens of decorated trees, forest friends, and giant, floating mirrored ornaments PLUS a bigger-than-ever Rudy’s Wonderland where kids can ride the historic Jones Store Train (Mini Holiday Express Train). And new this year, extravagant walk-thru window scenes complete with animated elements and perfect for even more holiday selfies.” This event runs through December 27th, 2021.

Kansas City Plaza Lights

In its 92nd year, Plaza Lights is back with its 15-block display on Country Club Plaza. The Energy Plaza lights will shine daily from 5:00 pm to 3:00 am through January 9th, 2022. Click here to learn the history and some fun facts about Plaza Lights!

Powell Gardens Festival of Lights

Lights, lights, and more lights! We’ve got drive-thru and indoor options, but what about a pleasant, brisk stroll through a botanical garden? As noted on the website, “Bundle up and wander a lighted outdoor path featuring immersive, botanically-inspired installations that celebrate the natural joy of the most festive season. More than 20 miles of lights highlight the natural forms of Powell Gardens’ tree collection, show off the exceptional architecture and landscape elements in the Gardens, and create paths through Instagram and holiday card-worthy photo moments.” Don’t miss this spectacular display from now through December 30th, 2021.

We hope this joyous season is filled with happiness and health. Happy Holidays from the entire team at Women’s Health Associates.
