KCMC Hosts Inaugural Hanging With Heroes Event

Kansas City Mom Collective was thrilled to welcome hundreds of people to our inaugural Hanging With Heroes event in the Central Park at Zona Rosa. We were so excited to have Airtasker as our title sponsor and Fry Orthodontic Specialists as our Superhero photo stop sponsor. Together with our amazing activity sponsors, they helped make this event truly come to life.

Our friends at Planet Comicon Kansas City invited their superhero and pop culture posse to the event. Kids were thrilled to come face-to-face with heroes like Spiderman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Captain Marvel, Wolverine, Ladybug and more! 

In addition, kids and the kids at heart flipped out to see some of our childhood heroes like the characters from Star Wars, Ghostbusters and Harry Potter.

Community heroes from the U.S. Army, Kansas City Fire Department and Kansas City Police Department were on hand to answer questions and let kids hop into their vehicles and check them out.

Kids in attendance brought in barrels full of food donations to Feed Northland Kids and purchased many glasses of lemonade from hero, Malina Cole, to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

Our attendees took part in games and activities such as superhero selfies, superhero training, silly string target practice and more from our amazing sponsors including:

Central Park was the perfect location to play and giggle your way through the fountain, climb on the play set and sit in the shade and eat a yummy lunch from Hereford House.

We had an absolute blast with all of you and can’t wait to see you all again at Hanging With Heroes 2023!
