True blue: Kansas City was cloaked in Royals hues in October

The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, working with the Royals, hired XS Lighting to project the team’s logo on the building each night of the postseason. Meanwhile, the iconic Power & Light Building at left — which for years boasted a red dome with changing colors below — glowed a solid Royals blue.

October 2014 will always be remembered as a special month in Kansas City.

The Royals ended a 29-year postseason drought with a magical journey. In turn, the city, slowly but then more assuredly, painted itself blue.

Fountains. Bridges. The top of City Hall and the top of the Power & Light Building. All lit up in blue.

Co-workers you’d never seen in a T-shirt showed up in blue.

Yes, it would have been sweeter if the Royals had beat the Giants to take the World Series crown.

But this doesn’t change: This was the October we were blue, and we couldn’t have been happier, or prouder.
