On Monday New Years Day,  the Kite Society of  Wisconsin & Illinois, and Gift of Wings are presenting our 37th Annual “COOL FOOL KITE & SNOW CARVING FESTIVAL”, The First Kite Festival of the New Year! This 37 year Milwaukee tradition will take place in Veterans Park, on Milwaukee’s usually warm and windy lakefront.  The kite festival is free to the public and will start at 11:00 am just prior to  the Polar Bear’s jump into Lake Michigan, and will run until we can no longer stand the cold, probably around 5:00 PM.  Jake, the Kite Guy will be flying his giant kites and be putting on a great show.  Some of his kites are over 100 feet long.  Kites and Hot Food are available for purchase or bring your own.  FREE Hot chocolate, coffee, and snacks will be served while it lasts, compliments of  Gift of Wings.
