The Kids Mad Dash is 30 kids launching their kites all at the same time, and who ever gets their kite the highest in 60 seconds wins a prize. The event will also feature a FREE kids kite making area, and a contest to name our new event. The person that comes up with the â€œCOOLESTâ€ name will win a $50.00 stunt kite from Gift of Wings. Bring your kite and join the fun or purchase a kite from Gift of Wings at the event. Food will also be served.
