Sunday, May 20 at 10 AM - 3 PM
Spring Canyon Park
Fort Collins, CO

Grab your kite and come out to Spring Canyon Community Park for the 9th Annual Kites in the Park Festival. Presented by City of Fort Collins.

Kites in the Park is a FREE family-friendly community event that celebrates all things kites. We’ll welcome fliers from around the world who will perform ballets, battle kites, and fly giant tiger, fish and bird kites.

Youth are welcome to make their own kite to take home. Also, enjoy the great food, activities, demonstrations, and giveaways that will take place throughout the day.

This year, we’ve expanded attractions throughout the entire park! Free parking will be available off-site and we’ll have free shuttles to bring you to the park. Carpooling and shuttle transport strongly recommended. With nearly 8,000 visitors, the parking fills up fast!

For more information there is the city website which has more details and is official. http://www.fcgov.com/kites

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...

* 3 "tips of the month" (for beginners, parents & experienced)
* A fresh "photo of the month" (+ link to big hi-res version)
* A fresh "flight report of the month" (my personal flying)
* Updates on the latest board game from my-best-kite.com

Any questions? Here's more info on both the e-book and the newsletter.
