DeKalb is at a huge park with plenty of space to fly.
I haven't heard what sport kite teams will be performing, but unfortunately, 180GO! won't be there this year.
There's usually a nice display of big kites and it's a nice family event.

It's a nice fest and there were quite a few big kites last year. As Mike said, the field is huge, so there's plenty of room for everyone. I might make it there with my son if we survive the cub scout camping. Maybe we'll "perform" :shock:

I'll try to make it. It was fun last year. Good place to fly.
