Fly your kite or learn to build a kite. Watch demonstrations of acrobatic and
large kites. There will be two hot air balloons for tethered flights ($5 for
kids, $10 for adults) scenic flights around Wayne County, weather
permitting will be available from 4 PM until dusk (cost $200 per person).

Here is one little known fact about kiting. Over a century and a half
ago, the mighty Niagara Falls, once known only to the local Native
Americans, was being transformed. A bridge spanning the turbulent gorge
was envisioned. The combined commission of the U.S. and Canada knew
very little about bridge building. They did not even know if spanning a
gorge 800 feet wide and 200 feet deep was practical.
To stretch a line or wire across the gorge, local ironworker, Theodore G. Hulett suggested offering a cash prize to the first boy who could fly his kite to the opposite bank. The first to succeed in spanning the gorge with his kite, named the ‘Union’, was fifteen-year-old American, Homan Walsh. Using this technique, the engineers built two temporary, fifty-foot wooden towers facing each other across the gorge. There was 1,200-foot of cable that passed over and was anchored to the towers using an iron basket to bring materials back and forth between the two towers.
The service bridge was completed in July 1848. The bridge that was built with the aid of a kite was officially opened to the public in August 1, 1848.
All because of a kite!

[Fanoe Island] Over the years, the familiar and social meeting is a fixed date in the calendar of the kite fliers. Thousands of kites fill the air and in good weather it could happen, that the beach of Fanø gets "crowded". But not really, because sandbanks in the north and in the south still have plenty of room.
We also like to thank all the resident of the island, who put up with this run of people once a year, because life on the island usually is quite peacefull and relaxed.
We can't say the same about our traditional auction of kites and kite items in favor of the "Kinderhilfe Kolumbien e.V." Our auctioneer Alfons from Berlin, gaurantees an evening filled with humour and actions that usually lasts until the early morning hours.
Fanø`s nature and culture make for a memorable holiday for the whole family. Its summer with beach life and nights were the sun never seems to go down are of course very atractive, but also the fall with it's golden colors, the winter storms and mild springtime with bird migrations are a good reason for holiday adventures.
The flat beaches of Fanø are also exelent for finding amber. There are also a lot of activities offered to adults and children, for example: music festivals, nature mudflat walks, golfing, or a meeting of the kite fliers, from which we like to tell you about on these pages.

[Milwaukee] Fireworks Kite Festival - July 3, 2011..BOOM BOOM.. KSWI in conjunction with Gift of Wings, US Bank, and Your Milwaukee County Parks, www.CountyParks.com, will sponsor our annual Fireworks Kite Festival. Featuring the Giant Kites of Yves LaForest. This is a fun fly and all are welcome to participate. Our goal is to fill the sky with as many kites as possible. This is a FUN FLY, and we will be flying the Mega kites of Yves Laforest. Times from 11:00 am until 6:30 PM, then 7:30 PM until the fireworks start at 9:25 pm. We have set aside a huge area of Veterans Park just for kitefliers. So fly a kite and get the best seats in the house for the greatest fireworks show on Earth. Well...in my opinion, of course. Now understand that traffic and parking are a real mess for this event, so come early and don't plan on leaving until after the fireworks are finished at 10:15pm. In other words, plan your whole day in the park. It’s a blast.
