Are you in the mood to celebrate Spring? Why not attend the Flights of Fancy Kite Festival this Saturday? Longview Community College is hosting this event in Lee's Summit, Mo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The kites of the Kansas City Kite Club will take flight over the lawn of the picturesque MCC-Longview campus in the heart of kite month, with awe-inspiring mega kites, power kites, stunt kites, and more including the world’s largest windsock – three stories high and 200 feet long!

Especially for the kids, Flights of Fancy will feature kite making, an inflatable maze, face painting, a balloon artist and a candy drop.

As always, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome on the MCC-Longview campus.

Glass, pets, alcohol, and grills are not permitted. We will have a number of fantastic food vendors including:
