FIREWORKS Kite Festival ~ July 3rd ~ Milwaukee WI

Postby Jynx » Wed, Jun 23 2010, 11:57 AM

FIREWORKS KITE FESTIVAL July 3, 2010..BOOM BOOM.. KSWI in Conjuction with Gift of Wings, US Bank and Your Milwaukee County Parks..CountyParks.com, will sponsor our annual Fireworks Kite Festival. Featuring the Giant Kites of Yves LaForest and performances by 180GO Revolution Quad-line Kite Team. This is a fun fly and all are welcome to participate. Our goal is to fill the sky with as many kites as possible. Times from 11:00 am until 6:30 PM, then 7:30 PM until the fireworks start at 9:25 pm. We have set aside a huge area of Veterans Park just for kitefliers. So fly a kite and get the best seats in the house for the greatest firworks show on Earth. Well...in my opinion, of course. Now understand that traffic and parking are a real mess for this event, so come early and don't plan on leaving until after the fireworks are finished at 10:15pm. In other words, plan your whole day in the park. It's a blast.

Shari and I are planning on trying to make it up there for this one. It sounds like a good time. Anyone else thinking of trying to make it? Any Hotel recommendations Jynx? something within walking distance would be nice but not necessary.

At a minimum, Chris and I will be there.

If you like fireworks, this is a must see!

You got that one RIGHT!

The fireworks are GREAT and the kiters (all of us) get AWESOME front row seats and also a space to fly away from the non-kiters.... :up:
Scott Fisher is hoping members of 180GO can perform for the crowd... and the rest of us can WOW them too! :revspin:

Let me know who will be there! :clubfly:

If I just happen to be in the neighborhood on Sat (10:30-11:00am), where would be a good place to park? The kite shop? Would I be able to leave before the fireworks? hehehe 8)

later dudes

Parking is crazy on the 3rd. You'd be in the field with everybody else. ;-)

If I do get to go, I'll leave before the fireworks, like I did last year.

It'd be great to fly with you again, David.
If you happen to be in the area that is :-D

Hi all,

I'm in (Yay!!)... what is the earliest we can show up and reasonably expect to be able to park? I'm driving up from Brookfield, and I can be in Milwaukee around 7:30 or 8:00, most likely.

I have got to ask, what is with the hour gap in the kite flying times. :?:
