[Glencoe] A WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE!! Chicago Botanic Garden..August 11th & 12th! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScdO20qdX-s) KSWI in partnership with Gift of Wings and the Chicago Botanic Garden presents our Eighth Annual Kite Festival at the Garden, featuring the Chicago Fire Kite Team featuring Eric Wolfe, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe5xOslXbis), Josh and Zach Gordon, Dan Newman, Mike Delfar, and Paul Koepke and Kathy Brinnehl. Featuring performances from Fire and Ice, and Something Old, Something New. A highlight of the weekend will be the kids kites of Charlie Sotich and the kite making workshop for the kids of Chicago. The festival will be located in a relatively small flying field, west of the main entrance. Kite fliers will have one nice area to fly during this event. The times are 10:00 am until 4:00 pm each day, with various intermissions scheduled throughout the weekend. The gardens were voted as the third best attraction in the Chicagoland area, so plan to spend the entire weekend flying kites and visiting this beautiful park. This is our eighth annual event and we want to make a very good impression. There is a small parking fee. This is another wonderful kite flying event brought to you by the Kite Society of Wisconsin & Illinois, and your friends at Gift of Wings.....Now the number ONE kite festival in the Chicagoland area, along with Wheaton and more to come in 2013.

[DIeppe] The Dieppe Kite International is the most renowned kite festival in North America.

The best kite flyers in the world, from several countries, come to Dover Park in Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada to fly multi-colored kites of all shapes and sizes in the sky above.

The first Dieppe Kite International took place in 2001. The goal was to offer an event that was original, full of colors and of international calibre.

The festival owes a lot of its success to the collaboration of internationally renowned kite flyers. Their participation at the Dieppe Kite International made it a first class festival and helped promote and market kite flying as a highly respected activity.

The Dieppe Kite International is now an annual event comprised of three types of activities: kite flying, community activities and cultural activities.
