Kansas City Tradition will Feature New Lights

Kansas City’s traditional lighting ceremony on the Country Club Plaza will be brighter and more energy efficient this year. Highwoods Properties, the owners of the shopping and entertainment district say 85 percent of the bulbs used in this year’s Thanksgiving Day event will be LEDs rather than the colored lights used in the past. An LED, or light emitting diode bulb, uses 0.46 watts. The company hopes to be 100 percent LED for next year’s ceremony.
