Let your spirit soar this weekend at the 18th Annual Chicago Kids and Kites Festival, an exciting day of kite flying and interactive activities. This fun event is always a great way to ring in the spring season – and Chicago’s famous winds make the city the perfect place to go fly a kite. Admission is free to this family fun day, which takes place from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 7 at Cricket Hill in Lincoln Park. Watch professional kite flyers demonstrate their skills, and buy a kite on-site to fly one yourself. There will also be kite kits for children to build, decorate and fly, while supplies last. You can also enjoy kite magnet craft making, face painting and balloon artists. For most, the highlight of the Kids and Kites Festival is the afternoon Big Kite Candy Drop from the sky!
