Another FREE kite-flying event, “Come Fly a Kite,” from the Wichita Park and Recreation department will be held this spring at Chapin Park in Wichita.
This is FREE for all ages.
On Saturday, October 5, the Wichita Parks and Recreation Department and Wings of the Wind Kites are teaming up to promote the joy of flying kites!
Kites of all sizes and shapes will fill the sky from noon to 4 p.m.
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.
There may even be a candy drop from a flying kite for everyone to get their sweet tooth fix!
Bring your own kite, or 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! The Parks department also usually has some kind of hands-on crafts for the kids and prize drawings.
It’s so much FREE fun – 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!
Since this is an outdoor activity, be sure to check the Wichita Park and Rec Facebook event listing to see if there are any weather-related schedule changes.
