KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Spinning cotton candy and checking audio, vendors and performers are ready for this year's Kansas City Riverfest.
"We are getting ready to have a really lovely busy night," vendor Kelly Brooks said.
"It's been a great tradition. Every year we try to make it a little better for families, especially those little ones," Jason Jeffries, Riverfest Chairman, said.
The 10th annual Fourth of July celebration has become a family favorite, especially when the weather cooperates.
At the end of the night, two thousand shells packed with awesome colors will light up the night sky, closing out the festival.
Thousands of people come to Riverfront Park or drive to the surrounding area to see the 18 minute firework show, making it a tradition that is sure to continue with so many families.=
