2009: Perry Farms Kite Festival, August 15-16

Perry Farms Kite Festival
Bourbonnais, IL
August 15-16, 2009
Website
Map

It can be a crowded field and it's not a great location for wind...but you can still find space to fly, and its still a good time.
If you've never seen competition, this is the only one held in Illinois. So here's your chance to watch, or even compete. They are very supportive of first time competitors.

Yep, plan on being there. At least one, maybe both days.

Since there's a kid's museum there, the whole family will likely show up one of those days.

Cheers,
Tom

I can't commit until close to the event. Work is too volatile.

If I do go, it will be Sat only.

i'll be there... even though the trees and houses make for less than ideal conditions (unless the wind is coming from the west). :roll:

Hey Kids,
Will anyone be around on Friday afternoon? I'm planning to come for the weekend but was wondering if it is worth coming on Friday.

Is there a particular place folks are meeting up? Or will there be wandering and milling?

Looks like the weather is going to be nice... can't wait.

The park isn't very big, and the open field is right in front of the parking lot. Just park right by the red museum. Turn in right next to Big Lots, and the entrance is right there. From there you won't have any trouble finding everyone.
