Go Fly a Kite 2010
April 17, 2010 • 9 am

Last April, in conjunction with Wheaton’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, Wheaton residents attempted to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the most kites flown simultaneously (967 kites). We had over 1,100 notarized registrants that day, but unfortunately, the wind was not on our side, and we did not break the record. A certified 800 kites were set aloft that day. The families that came out for the event had a great time, so we are ready to “give it another try.â€

FYI
Scott Fisher is sponsoring this one. He's been great to IKE members. We should support him when he visits IL!

That sounds pretty cool. What a sight to see, over 1000 kites in the air!
Also, if anyone hasn't seen the Chicago Fire perform, they are fantastic.
