Make some Memories with your Family
One of the Top Ten Places
to Fly a Kite - from USA Today, Nov 8, 2001
Each Labor Day weekend, folks from all over the Midwest gather for an annual kite reunion on the 200-acre prairie dedicated to kites.
Besides kites, there is down-home relaxation, picnicking, friendly conversation, and good old-fashioned fun.
“Seeing all of the big kites gets everyone’s attention. They’re something you don’t normally see, especially the big whales. They almost don’t look like kites. They look like blimps,” says ChelseyHeironymus, who comes to the kite flight every year with her three children.
“If you can, you really need to check it out. Don’t think of it as just a kite flight because it’s not,” says Chelsey. “We live 3 hours away and my daughter asks every year, Mom, are we going to the kite flight this year?”
