Waldo Fall Festival - Sat Sept 16, 2017

Beautiful September brings so many outdoor events in Kansas City..and this Saturday is the annual Waldo Fall Festival, now in it's 25th year.

 

It's happening Saturday Sept 16, 2017 from 10am-5pm at the southeast corner of 75th and Wornall in the parking lot. This family friendly festival offers rides, games, music, food trucks, a petting zoo and many vendor booths for browsing.  

 

Please be aware--this is a very busy intersection of Waldo any time of day.  So if you aren't going to the event--plan your route through Waldo along other streets.  If you are going, park a few blocks away, take the bus, or walk/bike over to the event.  Watch for extra traffic and kids running around!

 

Thank you for supporting Wonderful Waldo!
