Investing in North Kansas City
The North Kansas City Business Council will be recognizing and celebrating a wide range of investment in North Kansas City made by 35 businesses in the past year at a special "Investing in North Kansas City" luncheon program being held on Thursday, September 23rd at Harrah's Hotel & Conference Center.

Honorees include 35 projects completed in the last year representing businesses that are new to North Kansas City or are current North Kansas City businesses that have expanded, relocated, or made refurbishments or other significant capital investments. These projects generated nearly 400 new jobs in North Kansas City which, in turn, will infuse at least $15 million a year into the North Kansas City economy.

A Spooky Snake Saturday is Right Around the Corner!

The 2020 Snake Saturday Parade and Festival was cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic like most events and activities during that time. When Northland Festivals, the non-profit organization that produces the annual event, was faced with cancelling the beloved Northland tradition once again in 2021, they didn't give up ... instead, they got creative! And, with a few ghostly and ghoulish modifications and the guidance of the City Council of North Kansas City, and a partnership with the North Kansas City Parks & Recreation Department, the event was moved to October and transformed into a Spooky Snake Saturday Parade. Click here for the full story.
