WaterFire, held each year along the banks of Brush Creek by the Country Club Plaza, will be on Saturday, October 1 with live performances from 7 – 10 p.m.
WaterFire has many components, however the focal point is the installation of braziers in Brush Creek. The fragrance of aromatic wood smoke and flickering firelight of each brazier create a unique ambience unlike anything else in Kansas City. This year the installation’s footprint will increase from thirty braziers to around fifty.
Live vocals, dance and acrobatics will be performed by Quixotic, StoneLion Puppet Theatre, Rhythmic Flames, @Kansas City Drum Tribe, @Trio Forte and renowned operatic tenor Ben Gulley. In addition to the entertainment, several Plaza restaurants will have pop-up food and drink stands.
