Outta Sight Kite Flight Festival, Kenosha

GO FLY A KITE!! The 16th annual Outta Sight Kite Flight Kite Festival takes place in Kenosha’s Kennedy Park, June 3 & 4, 2017.

Once again, the Chicago Fire Precision Kite Team visits and will dazzle you. New this year is 180GO, a precision four-line kite flying team that will perform three times each day. They are the world renowned professional kite flying teams from Chicago. In addition to Chicago Fire, and Fire and Ice, The giant Kites of Alex Dagenais from Montreal Canada, will be making another appearance with their Super Giant Octopus kite, along with a MEGA 150 ft Octopus kite. Milwaukee’s own professional Kite flyer, Paul Koepke, will be performing with FIRE & ICE, all Professional kite flyers.

New this year, Connor Doran from America’s Got Talent will be flying indoors at two schools on Friday, June 2nd at 9 a.m., and on both days of the event at Kennedy Park. Jean Lemire will attempt to fly three stunt kites all at the same time. Tom and Kathi Deck will be on hand for the fifth time with their giant Bubble machine, making this one of the largest, longest-running bubble machines in the country. The Kenosha News will be on hand to make free kites for the kids, always a fun favorite.

This family event is free to all, with free parking. Free kites will be given away to the first 100 kids who participate in the City of Kenosha’s “Kids’ Mad Dash,” where 100 kids launch their kites all at the same time. The first kid reaching the highest altitude in 60 seconds wins. LOOK OUT and LOOK UP!

Kites and food will be available for sale at the park.
