High flying kites, family activities and a picnic lunch are highlights of a free community event from 12-2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at Lincoln Park. The “Time to Fly Kite Fest,” is sponsored by the City of Kenosha and the Kenosha Kingfish, with support from community partners and Gift of Wings in Milwaukee.
The Kenosha Kingfish will provide free hot dogs and chips for the first 400 guests, beginning at 12 noon. Mascot King Elvis I is expected to make an appearance. Look for Culver’s custard after 1 p.m., donated by the Kenosha Culver’s on Sheridan Road.
The City partnered with the Mary Lou and Arthur F. Mahone Fund to provide free kites to those who sign up to participate in the “Kids Mad Dash” at 1 p.m. People can bring their own kite, or get a kite at the festival to participate in the “Kids Mad Dash,” as everyone attempts to launch their kite at the same time.
