The Country Club Plaza is turning 100 — but it doesn’t look a day over 30.

The shopping district is celebrating in style with a Centennial Celebration that is nearly a year in the making. This follows special events like the Plaza’s Centennial Grant Program, which gifted a total of $100,000 to four local nonprofit organizations last year.

We want to see Kansas City show out for the biggest Plaza party of the century. Here are the details.
