If you haven’t ventured down to Martin City lately, you might not be aware of how much investment is being made in our district. We have a LOT going on… and we have a LOT of opportunities still to come!
Martin City has 75+ businesses in our district boundaries? That means, there is a huge workforce in Martin City! With all the upward growth our businesses are experiencing, many are in need of additional labor. We actively work with companies located in our district to promote open positions on the “Jobs” page on our website.
The Whiskey Run 5K race is part of the annual St. Patrick’s celebration in Martin City. All participants receive a race t-shirt, glass mug and a FREE post-race brunch at RC’s Restaurant.
The .1K challenge is held in late April and just about ANYONE can finish this race! All you have to do is make it 328 feet! Costumes are welcome, plenty of food, snacks, and beer. All proceeds go to the Mid-America Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help find a cure for blood cancers.
WE HAVE A PARADE!
What started as a joke amongst friends and patrons has transformed into one of Kansas City’s most celebrated St. Patrick’s parades. The parade departs from State Line Point Shopping Center at 2:00pm proceeding east down 135th Street to Holmes Road and typically has over 35 entries. Cash prizes for the top three entries.
Each year, the Martin City CID, in partnership with the Martin City Business and Community Association (MCBCA), hosts an annual holiday lighting event at the Bailey Brothers Bank Building on 135th Street, in the heart of Martin City.
WE BUY LOCAL!
Shopping local in Martin City helps us build and grow. When you eat at a restaurant or give someone a gift from a local Martin City business, a portion of the sales tax you pay directly benefits our district. It’s how we pay for our new roads, sidewalks, hanging baskets, and other projects that keep our community vibrant and growing.
