Let’s go fly a kite! Or just watch a bunch of them flying in the air!
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is hosting the 21st annual Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival on Saturday, January 28th from 12:00 – 4:00pm!
Kites of all shapes, sizes, colors and themes will fly over frozen Lake Harriet during this fun family festival. There will also be a kid’s DJ, s’mores and yard games.
Minnesota Kite Society experts will demonstrate maneuvering spectacular kites throughout the day and offer expertise to anyone interested in flying a kit. Bring your own kite or buy an inexpensive one at the lake!
The Kite Festival is a FREE outdoor event for people of all ages and abilities. Activities are centered around the north end of Lake Harriet near the Bandshell (4135 West Lake Harriet Parkway).
Free shuttles will run continuously between the Executive Building parking lot on the west side of Bde Maka Ska (3033 Excelsior Blvd.) and Lake Harriet on January 28th from 11:00am – 5:00pm.
Note: It will be cold this weekend so bundle up!
