Businesses and residents in downtown Kansas City and in the Crossroads are being asked to leave their lights on at dusk on Friday to enhance a rare photographic opportunity when fireworks are ignited from the roof of Union Station.
The event is a celebration of the station’s centennial, in conjunction with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Red Friday pep rally.
Unlike Memorial Day weekend fireworks, which are ignited from the Liberty Memorial, Friday’s show will have the downtown skyline as its backdrop, creating the opportunity for iconic photographs.
The fireworks will follow a digital, 3D animation projected onto the front of Union Station, created by Bazillion and produced by Quixotic. Here is a link to a teaser: http://vimeo.com/bazillion/unionstationteaser.
Meanwhile, crews on Wednesday painted the Chiefs logo on the north lawn of the Liberty Memorial.
