Kansas City enters its Taylor Swift era
Taylor Swift fans rejoice: the Eras tour has officially arrived in Kansas City. As the pop-star and her Swifties take over the city, local businesses are hoping to capitalize on the hype with Taylor-themed drinks and specials.
The Kansas City area is rolling out the red carpet for Taylor Swift. North Kansas City has temporarily named a road after her, and Swift's likeness was carved into a corn field in Ray County.
This weekend will see thousands of fans from around the Midwest piling into Arrowhead Stadium. Up To Date's Steve Kraske spoke with Alexis Greenberg, president of the University of Kansas Swift Society, and Wild Way Coffee's Christine Clutton about their love for Taylor Swift.
