Frontier Kite Fly Festival: Come Fly a Kite

Article provided by the Daily Herald.

For those who enjoy harnessing the wind to keep a colorful kite aloft, Naperville Park District’s Frontier Kite Fly Festival is for you. For those ready for the challenge of learning to make a kite perform tricks, the festival is for you.

But what if your kite-flying adventures tend to be a little more of the Charlie Brown variety?

Well, the Frontier Kite Fly Festival is for you, too.

At the annual festival, presented by Naperville Moms Network, participants can practice flying their own kites and even gather how-to-fly tips from experts.

Kite enthusiasts from Chicago Kite will perform by flying gigantic kites in unusual shapes. And kids should watch the skies as well for the piñata-like Sky Kite, which drops candy several times during the day.

The festival will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 4, at Frontier Sports Complex, 3380 Cedar Glade Drive, Naperville.

In addition to the free kite flying and demonstrations, unlimited inflatable jumping is available for $5 and food trucks will be on-site. Food trucks may include Aurelio’s pizza, Kona Ice treats, TCBY and John’s Rib House.

Free entertainment will be provided by local talent according to the following schedule:

  • 11 a.m. — Andrew Huber
  • Noon — Second Grade (second-place winner from Battle of the Bands)
  • 1 p.m. — Neuqua Valley High School Steel Band
  • 2 p.m. — Miss Jamie’s Farm
  • 3 p.m. — Ahead of Ourselves (third-place winner from Battle of the Bands)
