The 5th Annual Fort Collins festival was founded by John and Mary Farrell and organized by the City of Fort Collins.
From John,
5th Annual Fort Collins kite festival. Last year, under sunny skies, 4000+ people had a fun day flying kites, watching kite demonstrations, and just enjoying a community day in the park.
Free kite decorating for kids (keep the kite), contests with lots of prizes, vendors including yummy day in the park food, cultural displays, kite ballet, large show kites (octopus over 80 feet long), famous kiters such as Mix McGraw and his fabulous stacks of stunt kites, power kite demos, kite fights, and many more fun activities. This year the Quad Line Pairs team from Washington State, Carol and Cass Pittman, will be doing demonstrations and showing off their coordinated team flying skills. There will also be a Rokkaku Kite Battle in the afternoon if the winds allow. There will be audience participation.
Price FREE.
Put on by the City of Fort Collins and loads of helpers and volunteers.
