Go Fly a Kite in Chicago

If you want to get away for a while and have some fun, Chicago is the place to be May 3.

The 16th Annual Chicago Kids and Kites Festival is coming to Cricket Hill in Lincoln Park on Saturday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. And get this, the City of Chicago will provide kite kits for children to build, decorate and fly, while the supplies last.

Other activities that day include face painting,balloon artists and a kite shaped refrigerator magnet craft.

One of the most popular highlights of the festival is the big kite candy drop, which is like a piñata-like kite filled with candies that drop from the sky,weather permitting. Kite Harbor will be onsite for kite buyers, and professional kite flyers will demonstrate their skills with over-sized and uniquely shaped kites.

For more information, and fun, visit the Chicago Kids and Kites Festival online, or call 312-744-3316.
