A kite-flying event is planned at Chapin Park for Saturday, May 7, 2022.
“Come Fly a Kite” is FREE and fun for all ages! Twice a year – in the spring and in the fall – the Wichita Parks and Recreation Department and Wings of the Wind Kites team up to promote the joy of flying kites. At the event, kits of all sizes and shapes fill the sky.
There will be stunt kite flying demonstrations from professional kite flyers, kite-flying instruction, and more than enough field space for all skill levels to fly their own kite.
You can bring your own kite or purchase one at the event. The Wings of the Wind Kite-mobile will be there stocked with kites from $5 and up.
Everyone is welcome. My friends Mark and Susan from Wings of the Wind can help you make a good choice if you want to buy a kite. If you go for one of the mid-range kites it will probably last you longer, but do whatever is in your budget.
Or you don’t even have to have a kite at all! Just bring your lawn chair and enjoy the kite-flying demos and watch others battle the breeze.
It will be a fun afternoon and FREE – don’t miss it! Kite-flying is something almost anyone can enjoy, no matter your age or ability.
Come make memories to last a lifetime!
Date: Saturday, May 7, 2021
Time: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: Chapin Park, 2466 E. MacArthur Rd, Wichita, KS
