[Farmland] The Farmland Center Saturday (May 4th) will debut an exhibit of kites made by the late legendary Farmland kite-maker Ansel Toney.
The Ansel Toney Kite Show will begin with an opening reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday. The exhibit will remain on display through August 31 during The Farmland Center's regular business hours.
Historic Farmland USA Director Darrin Murrell said Ansel Toney, perhaps more than any other resident of Farmland, truly embodied the essence of what the local community is all about - talent, craftsmanship, hard work, artistic expression, individualism and integrity.
"He was also noted for his homespun friendliness and warmth with which he greeted every guest and poured into every kite he ever made," Murrell said.

Fun fly
[Layton] This is a kite flyers vacation, with live music, BMX demos, Hot Air Balloons, all kinds of food and craft vendors, plus kites; it is a relaxed fun fly atmosphere. There are no boundaries separating the different types of kites, or the kites from the people. Come camp right on the field and have a good time. Those who have come hve had a blast and isn’t that why we fly kites, to have a good time? So come out and join the fun, the field is plenty big enough, the scenery is pretty decent as well. Starts officially at 5 pm on Friday and runs til 8 pm on Sunday, Labor Day week end. Looking forward to seeing ya there.

The Kite Flight is held annually every Labor Day weekend at Foster Smith’s field just 4 miles SE of Callaway, NE. The Kite Flight will be held Aug 31-Sept 1, 2013 from 10am- 5pm.

[Two Rivers] The 8th Annual Kites Over Lake Michigan continues to grow in size and reputation. 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 and a bonfire on the beach. Once again there will be the Fireworks Show after the release of Sky Lanterns on the beach. Back by popular demand for the second time is the Tesla Coils demonstration on Saturday night. 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 at designated downtown areas.
Please note that there is not a specific schedule of the various activities for the kite festival, save for kids kite making on Sunday Sept. 1st, 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 regardless of the wind condition.
         
[Gering] Saturday Aug 31st, from 11am until dark. At 12pm,3pm, and 6pm we will feature a local speaker discussing the days events, kite history, kiting (past and present). Kite demos! All other times will be hands on flying, spectating, and lessons.

[Layton] A 3 day decompress after the Antelope Island Stampede. We camp right on the kite field, we pretty much have the island to ourselves, eat, drink, fly, swim in the Great Salt Lake, possible field trip to local sights, pretty much do what you want. Night flies, day flies, naps, whatever……The night flies we had this year,(2012) were pretty epic, ask anyone who was there. More than anything share time after the Festival relaxing; it really puts to rest the common PFD we have all had after leaving an event. Everyone is welcome, no agendas, and no politics, just fun.
If you have questions about anything, feel free to call me.
