[Callaway] Every Labor Day weekend since 1991, the village of Callaway, Nebraska, welcomes anyone and everyone to “Come Fly a Kite”! Professional and amateur kite fliers decorate the skies over the breathtakingly beautiful Nebraska countryside. The event is sanctioned by the AKA (American Kitefliers Association). Children and adults can enjoy the large colorful kites flown by our professional kite fliers. Visitors can bring their own kites or purchase a kite from one of our kite vendors. The event runs on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event is located just 4 miles SE of Callaway, along Hwy 40, at Foster Smith Field. This is approximately 60 miles NW of Kearney and 70 miles NE of North Platte. Admission is $2 per person, per day. Children 3 and under are free. Parking is also free. Concessions are available at the event and Callaway businesses will also be open. Bring a chair or blanket and plenty of sunscreen. Callaway Kite Flight is an amazing event that has hosted hundreds of guests each year from at least 21 nations and 29 states since the event began in 1991.
         
[Two Rivers] The 10th Annual Kites Over Lake Michigan will once again be held at beautiful Neshotah Beach, Two Rivers, Wisconsin. This is now one of the largest kite festivals in the Midwest and attracts kitefliers from all over. Come and marvel at the giant show kites, precision stunt kite teams flying dual- and quad-line kites, spectacular and colorful ground displays, running of the bols, and games for kids. Learn how to fly two and quad line stunt kites from the experts. There will be a night fly on Saturday night, conditions permitting. There will be something new at the beach this year, a pavilion, and it will be built just in time for the event. What is a stage with no music, right? For the first time, we will have a live band, Boogie And The Yoyoz, providing live entertainment on Saturday night from about 8.00 pm to 11.00 pm. This was made possible by our Title and Band Sponsors, Shoreline Credit Union and Fox Community Credit Union (fomerly RiverWood-Maritime Credit Union). Once again, there will be the Fireworks Show after the release of Sky Lanterns on the beach. We are looking for a record breaking number of Sky Lanterns being released this year. UFO will make them available for sale on the beach and the public will be invited to join in the mass ascension. On Sunday, there will be free kite making for kids and another day of kite flying and performances. Free shuttle service available to and from the beach to the Two Rivers High School (Lincoln Avenue/Hwy. 42).
Please note that there is not a specific schedule of the various activities for the kite festival, save for kids kite making on Sunday, September 6th, from 9am to 11am, because everything is dependent on the wind conditions at that time. We operate on what we call "kite time" and all activities are based on that. For example, if the wind is light, the stunts teams can still fly with their low wind kites but the giant show kites will likely be grounded until the wind picks up. Activities like running of the bols and glider drops will occur re
