Attend Celebration at the Station May 26 at 8:00 p.m. at Union Station (30 W. Pershing, Kansas City, MO). The Kansas City Symphony’s 17th annual patriotic concert event is the largest FREE Memorial Day weekend festival in the Midwest! From a moving Symphony concert to the city’s grandest fireworks display, nothing celebrates our military and veterans quite like Bank of America Celebration at the Station. Make it an all-day family affair with pre-concert musical acts, food trucks, Bayer Family Zone, the Honeywell Veterans Place with services for veterans, plus activities inside Union Station and the National World War I Museum and Memorial. At dusk, Kansas City Symphony Music Director Michael Stern leads a spectacular patriotic concert, including Tchaikovsky’s famous “1812 Overture” with live cannons and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” as a prelude to KC’s biggest fireworks display. The concert program honors veterans from all generations and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Grounds open at 3 p.m.
