Don’t worry: we weren’t under attack on Saturday

If you, like we, were perplexed by what sounded like an encroaching mortar attack near the Village Shops on Saturday night, we’ve got good news and bad news for you.

The good news is, it was just a fireworks display at Kansas City Country Club, and not an act of war.

The bad new is, the display was part of a wedding celebration you weren’t invited to. But don’t feel bad. They didn’t ask us to come, either.

The sound of the fireworks provoked a rash of calls to the Prairie Village and Mission Hills police dispatch line from anxious residents. The display was permitted by the city of Mission Hills.

Speaking of fireworks…the community meeting on the future of Mission Valley is just an hour and a half away…
