Today we had a busy day at the shop, but I had to go out to the south edge of town and check out the kite flying event going on. The Chicago Kite Club, the Kansas City Kite Club and the Illinois Kite Club were all on hand with beautiful kites.
Some were huge and some were small. Some were being flown in formations almost like airplanes!
These kids were trying to get these crazy animal kites off the ground. They were made by people in one of the clubs.
Kids of all ages were flying...anyone could join in.
Check out all the strings on this giant!
