8 p.m.: Giant puppet play, Illuminated Waters
Theis Park, Oak Street and West 47th St.
Building on the success of the past eleven seasons—this year visitors and puppet-makers will encounter a brand new innovation—a festival, called Illuminated Waters. Puppets—both on and off the actual waters of Brush Creek—will perform with the audience, as they’re illuminated from within.
Mark your calendar for this innovative artistic experience on MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND! This unique, free, two-day water festival will combine everything we have all learned to love—a giant puppet play, food trucks from around Kansas City, interactive art, games and music. Everything will be at Theis Park right next to Brush Creek. You’ll have the same fun you’ve always had—only this year our puppets will GLOW, illuminating the park with art and even float some on the waters of Brush Creek themselves.
