Pep Rally Celebration of the Century
Friday, September 5, 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Kick off football season this Friday at Union Station for the first annual Kansas City Pep Rally Celebration! With live guest appearances from Chiefs players, the coaching staff and Chiefs cheerleaders, Red Friday is a perfect excuse to wear your best Kansas City gear. Bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy live music, a 3D digital Union Station history display, and a stunning fireworks finale over downtown Kansas City. If you donate $4 to Ronald McDonald House Charities, you can even take home a Chief’s Kingdom Flag in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. Come be a part of this great celebration. (It’s been rumored that even Anubis will be wearing his Chief’s jersey.) For additional information, visit Union Station.
