Best Bets for the Weekend: KU Kickoff, concerts and cabaret

What a week! Hopefully you saved enough energy to enjoy any of these solidly-summery activities. Friday is especially exciting this weekend:

  • Join the crowd at Corinth Square on Friday and get in the Jayhawk spirit. It might seem crazy that it’s already time for the KU Kickoff, but it’s never too early to get excited for football season.
  • The whole family will enjoy an old-fashioned park party in Merriam on Friday. Let Merriam Park & Recreation Department entertain you with games, face painting, an inflatable, some light dinner and tunes from Salted Blue at Campbell Park.
  • Things will be getting saucy in downtown Overland Park on Friday night during a concert from Funk Syndicate, followed by a showing of Cabaret. Bring your blanket and enjoy one of the season’s last Music and Movies in the Park.
  • Saturday morning support the Lancer Dancers at their annual Pancake Breakfast, starting at 8 am at Shawnee Mission East.
  • Sunday at 6 enjoy Leawood’s summer concert series at Ironwoods Park Amphitheater. David Basse headlines this week’s event, which will move to The Lodge if weather is an issue.
