Kites Over Lake Michigan

August 29, 2015 - August 30, 2015

Two Rivers

The 10th Annual Kites Over Lake Michigan continues to grow in size and reputation. This is now the largest kite festival in the Midwest and attracts kite fliers from all over. Come and marvel at the giant show kites, precision stunt kite teams flying dual and quad-line kites, spectacular and colorful ground displays, running of the bols, and games for kids. Learn how to fly two and quad line stunt kites from the experts. There will be a night fly on Saturday night, conditions permitting. Once again there will be the Fireworks Show after the release of Sky Lanterns on the beach. UFO will make them available for sale on the beach and the public will be invited to join in the mass ascension. On Sunday, there will be free kite making for kids and another day of kite flying and performances. Free shuttle service available to and from the beach at designated downtown areas. Please note that there is not a specific schedule of the various activities for the kite festival, save for kids kite making on Sunday Aug 30th, 9-11am, because everything is dependent on the wind conditions at that time. We operate on what we call "kite time" and all activities are based on that. For example if the wind is light, the stunts teams can still fly with their low wind kites but the giant show kites will likely be grounded until the wind picks up. Activities like running of the bols and glider drops will occur regardless of the wind condition.
