Local Life | Hop on DOP

February 21 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Local Life 3rd Friday returns in 2020 with new themes, activities, and programming!

Come one, come all to Hop on DOP: A Whimsical Night for the Young at Heart. Inspired by the imaginative mind of Dr. Seuss, Hop on DOP is a kid-friendly extravaganza in Downtown Overland Park as a part of our monthly Local Life programming. Kids from one to ninety-nine are invited to shop, eat, and play in Downtown Overland Park. Check out what we have in store for our first-ever Hop on DOP:

Aubrey Vineyards | Kids 21+, head to the tasting room to sample two different kinds of locally-sourced wines. Then, grab a bottle of their wine of the month—Moscato!

CommuniTea | Between the live music and the arts & crafts activity, kids young and old are sure to be entertained. With a menu full of drinks and sweets, everyone in the family is sure to find something they'll enjoy.

Culinary Center of Kansas City | Hop on DOP, Then Pop & Top at The Kitchen Shop! Hey kids, top your own popcorn tastings in our kitchen. We’ll also have some tastings of our ‘Local Life Lightning’ Cocktail for the grown-ups (and a kid-friendly potion for the kids as well).

Images Art Gallery | Come view the Annual Young Artist Show and People to People International Peace Mural Exhibit at Images Art Gallery! You can even take home your own masterpiece—a portrait of you drawn by a caricature artist!

Sacks on Santa Fe | Stop by and shop our Spring Designer Trunk show! Clothing and accessories for the whole family will be 50% off, and we'll have snacks and drinks available while you browse.
