Kites take flight at DeKalb's second annual Kite Day
By ZAK QUIGGLE

A steady breeze blew over the field, suspending kites small and large in the air while hundreds of faces, young and old, surveyed the skies.

Kite fans from the American Kitefliers Association, the Illinois Kite Enthusiasts, the Wisconsin Kiters and other groups were in attendance at DeKalb’s Second Annual Kite Day, Sunday at NIU’s North 40.

When not watching the skyline, participants and spectators were entertained with information tents, food vendors, a live DJ and a tent where kids could build their own mini-kite.

Look for kites on the DeKalb skyline
By DAN STONE

Kites will grace the DeKalb skyline at the Second Annual DeKalb Kite Festival.
The free festival will be held Sept. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will have more entertainment than just aerial acrobatics.

The Kite Festival is a family-friendly event hosted by the DeKalb Convention and Visitors Bureau, said Debbie Armstrong, coordinator of the DeKalb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“There are stunt kites, fighting kites and kites that will perform ballet to music,â€
