Over the skies of Naperville, the Eighth Annual Naperville Park District Kite Fly Festival takes flight at Frontier Sports Complex on Sunday, June 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For many children, watching a kite soar through the sky brings unfettered joy. This free, family-friendly event will delight all those in attendance.
This free event offers many activities for all ages. Attendees can participate in learn to fly lessons as well as view amazing demonstrations of kites of all sizes by Chicago Kite. In a separate area, guests can bring their own kites. The Family Fly area will offer tons of space for flying.
The 2014 Frontier Kite Fly Festival is sponsored by Naperville Development Partnership, Eye Level, Tide Dry Cleaners, New York Life, Bike Bald, Aurelio’s Pizza, Kona Ice, Bella Monograms and OMango.
Food trucks will be on site offering Aurelio’s pizza, Kona Ice treats and traditional Indian cuisine from OMango. Continuing a favorite tradition, candy drops will occur multiple times throughout the day.
The Neptune fire truck, which carried first responders from Neptune, New Jersey, to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, will be present at the event. Neptune was donated by the Terry Farrell Foundation to the Bike Bald organization in support of pediatric cancer research and awareness.
