KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In celebration of the Chiefs playoff game this Sunday, Union Station installed a massive “Chiefs Kingdom” sign decked out with marquee lights in the middle of the Grand Hall.
Where a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree stood less than a month ago now sits the sign, each letter standing three-feet tall. A relentless flow of visitors and football fans swing by the sign to snap a picture, many decked out head to toe in sportswear.
The sign was created by Alpha-Lit Kansas City, a local branch of a Dallas-based company that creates marquee signs for special events. It was set up to correspond with the Red Friday Ride, a Chiefs-wrapped KC Streetcar filled with KC Wolf, the Rumble Drumline and more. The ride went from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The sign is scheduled to be at Union Station through Jan. 15.
