Schedule of Events

The Lane of Lights will go until the end of the month, so if you and your family haven't gone through yet, you still have time! Hours are 5pm-9pm on Lovers Lane in the downtown. Suggested donation is $5-10 and go to help local nonprofits and the Christmas Committee!

Best Week Ever
Families celebrating Christmas this year definitely had the Best Week Ever! With many family gatherings cancelled in 2020, thanks to the power of vaccines, many families were able to join together safely this holiday season. For an update on the situation here in Excelsior Springs, click here for a message from our ES Hospital CEO Kristen Dehart being interviewed on the news.
Coming Soon
We were surprised to see a banner go up in the lot next to McDonald's for a Go Car Wash! There was a mixed response with citizens, with some ready for a membership and others who are ready for a QuikTrip!
Word on the Street
The Mug Coffeehouse and Excelsior Roasting Company announced this week that there are new owners! Congratulations to Josh and Jen Reynolds! Be sure to swing through and enjoy all your favorite
sweets and drinks!
