Chicago Botanic Gardens Kite Festival

Postby Mike » Tue, Jul 24 2007, 06:59 PM

August 11 and 12, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This festival is on the same weekend as our picnic. Here's the press release:

It's held in a small area, and there isn't any room for the public to fly kites. However, if you'd like to see the Chicago Fire do their stuff, go to the Gardens on Saturday, and to our Picnic on Sunday.

The Botanic Gardens are always nice to visit, and the kite demonstrations are a nice bonus. :wink:

It was this event last year that introduced me to kite flying, and got me instantly hooked before I ever picked up a line. (Or handle)

There's not a lot of room, not for sport kites, but they open the field up during breaks in the performances, mainly to let the kids out there.

And it's always neat to see the Chicago Fire perform...

Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!
