Here was in a email from the club this afternoon...

WOW ! What a Fabulous Weekend !
Two Beautiful Days hanging out with KITERS !
The Otto M. Budig Family Foundation Kite Fest was a Success !
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for all of your help !!!
We couldn't have done it without all of our volunteers !
The kitemaking crew made 841 kites, that's lots of smiling kids !
Chicago Fire and 180 Go had constant admiring, amazed and enthusiastic crowds !
The wind allowed for several appearances of the BIG Kites.
The muddy fields were full of kiters of all ages, parachute runners, and stunt kite newbies !
Pat yourself on the back ! Get some rest.

breath on you.

Thanks to everyone who traveled to attend our event. Your time is much appreciated, and I'm hoping all was well and we'll see you again in the future. Rebekah and I are working on finishing up our article for the festival to go into AKA's Kiting Magazine.

642 photos from the kitefest start here:

Each set is named by it's photographer so you can see who has taken what... Also if you'd like to view/download a high res. shot just click on "all sizes" above that photo and select the resolution.

Chris and Rebekah,
I can't second Mike strongly enough. You put on a stellar festival and should be so very proud of how quickly you have grown this into an event of its caliber. Please pass along to your fellow PIGS my thanks for a job extremely well done.
Be well,
Dan
