"GMA" Unveils Kansas City Holiday Window

Kansas City, Mo., is the city represented in "GMA's" first holiday window.

Dec. 3, 2008 — -- "Good Morning America" ushered in the holiday season by unveiling the first of three holiday windows at the "GMA" Times Square studio, and Kansas City, Mo., served as the inspiration for the first window.

The Kansas City holiday-themed window continues "GMA's" tradition of decorating its studio windows.

The Kansas City Convention and Visitors Association, along with Hallmark Cards Inc., helped decorate the display, which includes a replication of the city's skyline. The largest ornament is a little more than 4 feet tall, and the window also reflects an homage to Hallmark's Keepsake Ornament.

The window includes five oversize ornaments that depict Kansas City scenes, including the mayor's Christmas tree and J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain.

With nearly 200 LED lights, the Kansas City holiday display used almost a half pound of specially formulated iridescent flitter to create a sparkling snow effect.
