KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The launch of Starbucks' holiday drinks means Christmas is upon us, right?
Well, maybe not — but things are certainly beginning to look a bit more jolly in Kansas City.
The mayor's Christmas tree arrived at Crown Center Thursday.
It will take about a week to get the 100-foot fir in place, with the lighting ceremony happening the day after Thanksgiving.
Another celebrated Kansas City holiday tradition is also approaching: the Plaza lighting ceremony.
That takes place on Thanksgiving from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Following the ceremony, the Country Club Plaza will remain lit every night until mid-January.
