Over 20,000 visitors expected for First Friday, Festival of the Full Moon Weekend
By: West Bottoms Historic Entertainment District
Shopping in the West Bottoms spans thirteen blocks with vintage and antique treasures, plus fashion, cafés, and creative outlets. Over 20,000 shoppers are expected in this district seeking its unique finds - many with a story from its past history or from the experience finding it. The West Bottoms area has many of Kansas City's oldest buildings, from its original historic stockyard origins, with many large brick warehouses built in the 1800's. The granite stone streets create a quaint setting to hunt for favorite things and enjoy the Food Truck Wine and Dine options.
First Fridays in the West Bottoms includes the Festival of the Full Moon, with fun themes each month. The "Bunnies in the Bottoms" themed event is complete with recognition of April's Moon – a Pink Moon in its specialty drink "The Cottontail" - a pink lemonade mixed with cotton candy vodka. "We are thrilled for this Festival of the Full Moon weekend where the hunt for treasures and the photo bunnies are going to have the Bottoms hopping," said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, West Bottoms spokesperson for the district.
Festival of the Full Moon will have a new theme each month. Upcoming events include: May's "Bloomis in the Bottoms," June's "Brides in the Bottoms," July's "Boom in the Bottoms," August's "Barking in the Bottoms," September's "Booze in the Bottoms," October's "Boo in the Bottoms," November's "Blessings in the Bottoms," and December's "Balls in the Bottoms". Each will have music, entertainment, food specialties, and cocktails that fit the theme.
