Royals vs. Twins
Baseball is back, and we can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night than at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals face the Minnesota Twins for their third game of the 2016 season. If you head to the game on an empty stomach, check out these new food offerings at The K. First pitch is at 7:15 p.m.
A Night of Knowledge and Nonsense
Who’s up for a little trivia? This game night at Abdallah Shrine Temple is hosted by the Kansas City Delta Gammas but is open to friends and family willing to test their entertainment knowledge. The games start at 7 p.m., and tickets can be purchased here.
River Market Walking Tour
The farmer’s market isn’t the only attraction worth checking out in the River Market. At 9 a.m. Saturday, the River Market is offering a free walking tour through the historic K.C. district. The one-hour tour will shed light on the history of the area’s redevelopment, stories of old about Battle Row, Marble Hall and Jesse James, and a stroll down the Town of Kansas Bridge.
Saturdays are for adventure, and now you can experience the outdoors at the grand opening of Go Ape! at Swope Park. The new adventure course features five zip lines, two Tarzan swings and ropes courses galore. Prices vary depending on age and the courses chosen, but the joy of completing the course? That’s priceless.
K-State Rhapsody III
Kansas State University’s annual scholarship event is back at Kauffman Center for a night of impressive performances. You’ll hear from the K-State Grand Chorus, the Lawrence Children’s Choir, the Flint Hills Children’s Choir and the Flint Hills Masterworks Chorale. The Kansas City Ballet will also perform. The show starts at 6 p.m. and tickets can be purchased here.
