Paint the Night at Park Place

Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a street fair. Lucky for you, you can go around the world with little to no travel time. No packing required.

For one special evening, Leawood’s Park Place shopping and entertainment district will be transformed into an old-fashioned street fair for its annual Paint the Night event. During this year’s “Around the World”-themed event on July 26, guests become globetrotters through festivities, fashion, food and fun with international flavor.

Sample cuisine from Japan, Mexico and Italy and other corners of the earth, enjoy a fashion show choreographed to live instrumental rock music and be dazzled by multicultural music and dance performances, from opera to mariachi to Irish rock, culminating in a grand finale of acrobats, fire and aerials.

Not only will you enjoy the entertainment of a street fair, but you can also raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate. For a donation, participants will be able to use their creative side to help create a mural spearheaded by Pinot’s Palette. If painting doesn’t spark your interest, you can bid on auction items or purchase VIP seats for the fashion show to help support the cause.

Clear your Saturday and start planning your night at Park Place now.
