The Minnesota Kite Society requests help from the public to fill the sky over Bloomington, MN with colors and fun shapes at their annual Flying Colors Kite Festival. The event is free and everyone is invited to bring their kites and fly with us.
The festival is from 11am – 4pm, Saturday, August 18, 2012 on the Valley View Middle School (8900 Portland Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55420) play fields located on 90th Street between Portland Ave. S. and 3rd Ave. S. in Bloomington, MN.
The event activities include a kite making workshop for the kids (while supplies last), kite competitions and games for kids and adults, stunt kite demonstrations, giant show kites and open flying for the public.
Guest kite fliers from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa will be helping to put on a great show. Larry Day and Mark Brandt from Clear Lake, Iowa will be bringing their large show kites. Coming from Wisconsin will be Ed Grys, American Kitefliers Association Regional Director, with his great kites. Mr. Kite, Craig Christensen from Lakeville, MN will be there with his spectacular kite creations providing music for the demonstration fields.
Back from last year will be the kid's events like the glider drop where small gliders are dropped from a large kite and kids scramble to claim a glider to keep. Kids that find specially marked gliders win prizes. Also planned this year will be a candy drop and more games. Kids can also color and make their own kite to keep and fly for free while supplies last.
This year Gastrotruck will be there selling their exceptional food and beverages.
Join the Minnesota Kite Society for some free family fun and help fill the sky with color.
