Johnny Kaw Plaza celebration (PPD)

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Our much-awaited Johnny Kaw celebration is on hold due to rainy spring weather that has presented construction scheduling challenges. Check with Visit Manhattan for updates on this rescheduled event, when we'll celebrate the renovated area around Johnny Kaw statue in Manhattan's City Park.

Johnny's very own, new plaza area will possess descriptive boards, LED lighting, limestone seating and accessibility improvements. Once the event is rescheduled, join the fun with pancake cookies served up and 6 p.m. (tentative ) fun run. Plus, we'll stage a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new plaza area that expresses Johnny's incredible tall tales.
