Once again, we are so proud to announce that the Legendary WINDJAMMERS Kite Team will be performing both days. The Windjammers International Kite Team began with the simple love of kite flying. Welcome!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmdbCZ1kUcw
JUST RELEASED****We are thrilled to announce that Jos and Kaatje Valcke from Belgium will be making their first appearance in Milwaukee, with their collection of beautiful giant kites.
Yves Laforest and his team of Canadians will join Jos and Kaatje on the field with some really new, really large, and really exciting kites to the Family Kite Festival, sponsored by our friends at Gift of Wings and Dole Juices. We cannot tell you what the new kites are, but they are really big, really colorful, and, did we say, really expensive kites.
Suffice to say, we can all expect the GREATEST LARGE KITE SHOW EVER IN THE MIDWEST!
