For kids of all ages, Bond Park's Annual Kite Festival is a great way to spend the afternoon. Participate in a free kite flying contest and you'll be eligible for certificates and special awards in a variety of kite flying categories intended for all ages and experience levels. Registration for the contest is free from 12:30-1:30 p.m. The kite festival is free and open to the public. Participation in the contest isn't necessary. Fun will begin at 1 p.m. on the multipurpose field adjacent to Bond Lake. There will be an expert kite flyer on hand to provide kite flying tips and assist with mending kites that need a little help. Enjoy music, concessions and kite flying fun.
