Kansas City 'Parade Of Hearts' Concludes

The low rent and very campy artsy exhibit turned out a lot better than we expected . . .

Now we'll see how much cash they raised for local COVID recovery . . .

In the Parade of Hearts, each of the 5-foot hearts has KC etched in the center, but otherwise they all have unique concepts with special stories behind them.

"While many of you have asked if they can stay up longer — the main mission of Parade of Hearts was to raise critical funding to support so many impacted by the last two plus years of the pandemic," the organization said earlier this month. "While we have the same desire to keep the hearts up longer (or forever) for all to enjoy — we have a stronger desire to get help to those who are in great need."

All hearts will be up until May 31 then they will start to come down in preparation for an auction in June.

Final week to view Parade of Hearts art around Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - People have just one more week to view the over 150 giant hearts throughout the Kansas City area, all designed by local artists. The iconic KC heart is a symbol of civic pride, a nod to the Heart of America and officially dates back to the Kansas City Monarchs in the 1940s, but retailer Charlie Hustle gave it new life with its popular tees.
