Vendors, live music, food, activities
Details are set for the next celebration to be held on Main Street in downtown Platte City.
Main Street Fall Festival is planned on the courthouse square in downtown on Thursday, Sept. 23 from 5-9 p.m. It is sponsored by the Platte City Chamber of Commerce.
It will feature things like live music, food trucks, a wine station, Kansas City Chiefs mascot KC Wolf, and two Chiefs cheerleaders.
There will be many vendors and locally-based activities to entertain the crowd.
“We currently have 28 vendors signed up, with a mix of businesses and items for sale,” said Stephanie McKinley, executive director for the chamber, this week.
Entertainment options will be led by popular local musician Matt Snook from 7-9 p.m. Snook, who lives in Platte County, competed on Season 8 of The Voice as a member of Team Blake.
There will be performances from 6-7 p.m. by the Platte County Pirates Cheerleading Club, the Platte County High School Treasures Dance Team, Platte County High School cheer squad, and Beatnik’s Dance Studio.
Food vendors will include Cowtown Donuts, Taste of Brazil, Jowler Creek “and possibly Coco Loco,” McKinley said this week.
There will also be make-and-take crafts options available, and face painting in the Kids Zone from 5-7:30 p.m., McKinley said.
This will be the third major event held in downtown Platte City in the past few months. Downtown Platte City recently hosted a wildly successful Independence Day celebration, and then in early August was the site of the annual Cops and Kids Night Out event.
