Kite Fly & Nature Learning

KidFest Shuttle Service
Langendorf Park (235 Lions Drive, next to the pool)
The KidFest mission is to provide activities that inspire healthy habits, expose nature opportunities in the area and to encourage families to get up and explore the great outdoors. Our goal is to inspire families to go for a hike, a bicycle ride, play catch, fish, play frisbee and of course, Fly A Kite!
KidFest is a FREE, fun, family event that gets the entire family outside and moving.
This is a FREE event located at Citizens Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of the registration tents to get your all access wristband to participate in all of the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10) and fly it in the big open field. At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Climb a tree, build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Rotary Grill! We have something for everyone to enjoy and it’s ALL FREE! This event is very popular and parking is limited. FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.
In the event of inclement weather, this event will be canceled. Call our weather hotline at (847) 268-2268 for event status.
