K. Votypka, DirectorWhat a fantastic summer North Kansas City Parks and Recreation has had! We want to thank all our patrons and Community Partners for helping to make it a successful
season. The Second Annual Arts in the Park took place on June 8 and 9. We had amazing musical entertainment, talented and skilled artists and an array of kids’ activities, and all the food and drinks you could ask for. With Friday night concerts, movies, art camps, cooking classes and more, North Kansas City Parks and Recreation offers something everyone can enjoy. We have a wonderful variety of seasonal classes where you can make your own holiday decorations or the perfect gift. Bring a friend and have fun while making something! See pages 2 and 4 for more information on our make-and-take classes.

In addition to our great classes this fall, we’ll be celebrating the spookiest
time of the year, starting with our Howl-O-Ween event for our furry fourlegged friends. Dress them up to participate in a costume contest, and you might just win one of our great prizes. Then make plans to join us for our annual children’s Halloween Festival, which is held the fourth Saturday in October. Bring your happy thoughts to fly with Peter Pan as you escape the clutches of Captain Hook on Skull Island.

The first Mistletowne Market will be held at the Parks and Recreation
Center on November 16 and 17; see page 8 for more information. After you
shop the market, join us outside City Hall for the annual Mayor’s Christmas
Tree Lighting Ceremony. Our Holiday Carnival will wrap up our events in
2018! We hope you’ll join us for these great events this fall!
