Building Culture on Strawberry Hill

While First Friday in the downtown Kansas City Crossroads district has been going on strong for a decade now, Third Friday on the other side of the river is fairly new. The last time I travelled to this once-monthly celebration of neighbors and arts, the event was brand-new. But… that was over year ago. This month’s event snuck up on me but I decided to go down, see what was new, and to snap some photos.

Children and adults alike enjoying the water from sprinklers in the extreme heat.

it was a hot 99 degrees F, yet there was a decent crowd of people enjoying the evening. Consisting of various craft makers, musical artists, food trucks, and clubs, the once-monthly event took over 6th street. To beat the heat, vendors and visitors alike were visiting a water sprinkler garden that was constructed in the middle of the event.

Outside looking in. There were bands indoors as well as out on the street.

All in all, it was hot, but an enjoyable time. I hope you enjoyed some of these pics.

Until next third Friday!
