THE ALL-STAR EDITION: It’s the biggest event to hit Kansas City in decades. After months of planning it’s finally arrived. Get ready for tens of thousands of out-of-town visitors and lots of national media coverage as the Major League Baseball All-Star Game descends on Kansas City.
All-Star activities are expected to attract as many as 150,000 people with events starting tonight going through to Tuesday night’s big game. Even if you’re not a baseball fan you’re certainly going to be touched by this big five-day celebration. City leaders say the game will leave an economic impact of about $60 million on the metropolitan area.
With us to explore its significance, the preparations, what’s involved and who’s picking up the tab are some of those officials most closely involved in making this all work.
