This is a FREE event. Visitors will enjoy Kite Fest traditions such as giant inflatable kites, dancing kites high up in the sky, and some fun, seasonal on-site activities. All activities will take place near the Kiwanis Park Shelter, with adjacent free parking at Kiwanis and the Sports and Recreation Center, located at 1765 South 4th Street.
Featured professional kite flyers will include Al Sparling, Darryl Waters, Anthony Catalano, Team Sky FX, and Team Chicago Kite. Participants can bring their own kites or buy one at the event to enjoy the public kite-flying area! Volunteers will be on-site to demonstrate safe kite assembly and flying. Manja string or any other type of glass-covered string is prohibited.
No festival would be complete without food vendors! Select food vendors will be on-site. Families and individuals are encouraged to grab their picnic blankets and lawn chairs and secure their spot early to experience this free event’s magic.
