Bubbles in the Bottoms: A Celebratory Weekend Destination Prelude to the Big Game
Kansas City's West Bottoms First Friday Weekend February 5-7
By: Historic West Bottom Entertainment District
The West Bottoms draws visitors from all over the region to experience shopping in these multi-story, historic buildings. Store designers creatively display the vintage, antiques, apparel, and unique items to make looking around more fun. Visitors love the thrill of finding things that often have an origin story beyond the adventure of finding them.
"The West Bottoms is adding bubbles for fun this month," said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, West Bottoms district spokesperson. "It's a perfect time to celebrate our Chiefs as the AFC champions and a fun place to share champaign bubbles with your valentine."
In the spirit of the Festival of the Full Moon, the month's moon is the Snow Moon. If it is freezing, the festive bubbles floating in the streets may freeze and offer a picturesque gleam. Festival of the Full Moon will have a new theme each month. Upcoming 2021 First Friday Weekend schedule includes:
