Metro Kansas City Neighborhood Christmas Displays No. 2 - Chicago Street in Blue Springs

One of the Metro's longest-running Christmas light displays on the Missouri side is a neighborhood project on Chicago and surrounding neighborhood streets in Blue Springs

I first saw this display in the late 1980's and- according to this story from the INDEPENDENCE- BLUE SPRINGS- GRAIN VALLEY EXAMINER- the display has been an annual affair since 1982.

The lights go on Thanksgiving Day and run through New Year's Eve- from 5:30 p.m. to midnight daily.


Donations are taken- but not required at a booth at the end of the display on 1st Street- with the proceeds going to Blue Springs charities.
