10:00 am – 1:00 pm, Roeliff Jansen Park
With lots of wide open fields and a fairly constant breeze, Roeliff Jansen Park is a great place to fly a kite. Kite flying enthusiasts as well as those new to the sport are invited to take advantage of the space and catch the wind at Kite Flying Day in the park.
Outdoor Educator Fran Martino will be on hand to teach about the wind and how to make a kite. In addition, she’ll help kids and families build anemometers to measure wind speed and direction in their backyards. Experienced kite flyers will be encouraged to show off their kites and how skillfully they can fly them, as well as offer tips to less experienced kite flyers.
A limited number of kites will be available for purchase. This is a free event and will be held rain or shine.
