The Kansas City Museum hosts its 25th Annual Neighborhood Holiday Open House Nov. 30, offering attendees an evening of holiday music, a meet and greet with the Fairy Princesses and a spread of delectable appetizers. During the event the winners of the Fairy Princess Costume Contest were honored and included Micah Morrison and Jamie Rain Boes. Isabel Candillo was unable to attend. The Fairy Princess tradition dates back to 1935 when Kline’s Department Store opened its first Toyland. Other department stores featured visits with Santa, but Kline’s was the only store where you could find a Fairy Princess. The tradition continued until the late 1960s, shortly before the department store closed. The Kansas City Musuem resurrected the tradition in the late 1980s and partnered with Zona Rosa in 2006 to include Fairy Princesses in the Northland shopping district.
