Diana, A Celebration, Union Station Kansas City: News about the Royal Wedding Watch Party

The big day is nearly here, and Union Station Kansas City is ready for it. The Royal Wedding Watch Party — which is free and open to the public — promises to be a major event, and no one is complaining about showing up at 3:00 a.m. to start the festivities. Local and even national media will be on hand to take part in and cover the big party.

Of course, most people who attend just want to share the experience with others, but there are also some great incentives to be on hand from the start. For example, admission to the Diana, A Celebration, exhibition will be free from 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. Admission will then be just $5.00 until 10:00 a.m.

The first 10 people to arrive at the party will win a Mother’s Day brunch at Harvey’s Union Station and a free ticket to Diana, A Celebration. The first 50 people get a complimentary exhibition ticket, and the first 100 receive a Union Jack and a tiara.

Guests can enter to win tickets to a Jimmy Buffet concert. One lucky bride and groom will win a rehearsal dinner for 20 people. Guests an also enter to win a Mother’s Day gift package that includes brunch at Harvey’s Union Station, a complimentary ticket to Diana, A Celebration, and a catalog of the exhibition.

Two VIP tickets to Celebration at the Station, featuring the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra on Memorial Day will be given away, along with many other prizes, including a night at the Westin Crown Center Hotel, Union Station Kansas City membership, QT gas card, NBC gift baskets, $25 gift certificate to Jack Stack BBQ, and Diana memorabilia.

To top it all off, a grand giveaway will be announced. All that can be said right now is that the giveaway has a value of $25,000.

Indications are that the Royal Wedding Watch Party crowd will be large, so it would be wise to arrive early and find a comfortable spot near the video monitors that will carry live coverage of the wedding.

The day does not end when the wedding is over. The ceremony will be replayed all day. From 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., a Royal Wedding Reception will feature champagne and the official chocolate biscuit wedding cake. Union Station members can enjoy this event at no charge. Nonmembers pay just $8.50.
