I was a bit slow in compiling events happening this weekend. I think my impetus was somewhat thwarted by hearing about exotic events around town costing about $75 (Union Station) and figured that most people had plans already. If you do not, here is what I gleaned from looking at visitkc.com, kckidsfun.com, and kcparent.com (not a lot it seems). Thanks to these sites for their info. Perhaps it will give you an idea of something to do!
