Edmond Oklahoma's 4th of July Festival

KiteFest

Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th

West side of Mitch Park – Enter from Santa Fe north of Covell Sat. 9:30 A.M – 4:30 P.M. & after sundown a Lighted Night Flight (wind & weather permitting). Sunday 9:30 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.

2017 is the 27th Anniversary of the KiteFest and admission is free.

The 2017 KiteFest will be located on the far west side of Mitch Park. We will be flying between mile roads Covell and Coffee Creek on North Santa Fe. The Kite Festival will include many events for the experienced flyer as well as the novice. We will paint the sky with hundreds of kites flown by anyone who wants to “go fly a kite.” So bring, make or buy a kite and fly it.
 KiteFest1There will be team demonstrations by experienced kiters. The two-line kites are flown in synchronized figures and patterns by three or more kiters. There will also be kiters flying four-lined kites in patterns never dreamed of by the kiters of yesteryear.
We also will be sanctioned this year for competitive flying to assist those kiters wanting to attend the AKA national event in Enid this fall.
The Kite Festival will include making kites for even the youngest kiter and a place to fly their new kite. Candy drops from a large kite will occur several times Saturday for the kids.
Several Master Class kiters will demonstrate new kites and flying techniques. Some traction kiters will pull their buggies with kites.
Everyone is welcome to bring their own kite.  Small sled kites will be given to every child so each child can fly a kite.  Other kites of various sizes, colors, etc. will be sold by our vendor,” Wings of the Wind Kites and Toys.”

All are invited to come and fly a kite or just watch. Homemade kites are welcome.
All of these festivities and many others will take place at Mitch Park between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Saturday, June 24th and Sunday June 25th.
Saturday will include a silent auction for those interested in bidding on a kite or kite related objects.  Donations for the auction would be appreciated.  So clean out a closet or kite bag and help out KiteFest.
After sundown the kiters will return and do a night-fly. (Saturday only – night fly – weather and wind permitting.) Lights will be placed on the two-lined kites and flown together in many experience with UFO’s. This is a “must see” for those who have never witnessed a night kite to kite flying for anyone who wants to “go fly a kite”.
