Valentine’s Day is a widely celebrated holiday nationally, but what does KC do to stand out during the season?
Kansas City holds a variety of events to celebrate Valentine’s Day for everyone. Starting with athletes in Kansas City, there is The “Sweetheart” Run with the choice of running a 5K or 10K with your partner. It is held in Overland Park, and begins at 9:00 AM on Feb. 12th. While enjoying the run, runners get the chance to win a medal and a t-shirt, but also receive the real prize: a memorable time with your loved ones.
If you are looking for a romantic dining experience, The Melting Pot has special menus and packages to incorporate their fondue into the Valentine’s Day celebration. This can include a 4 course meal for two, on top of The Melting Pot adventure. There is also an option to call beforehand to add a special touch for your valentine.
