June 3rd/4th – Come Soar Sky High In Mandan
Wow does this bring me back to my childhood...
...and maybe this will to you too. When was the last time you flew a kite? Let me rephrase that, when was the last time you physically flew a kite ( not in a video game ) My answer to that last question would be about 45 years ago. Coming up in less than two weeks, here is your chance to bring the whole family out - experienced flyers to the very beginner, time to enjoy Kite Fly, AND raise some money as well for an important cause.
I wanted to find out more about how much kites have changed "these" days
This afternoon I had a chance to talk to Rena Renarusgad, from Prairie Wind Kites, she will be out there in Mandan loaded with an assortment of kites for your to buy and FLY, at inexpensive costs for the beginner, ranging from $11 to $65, these beautiful Fiber Glass Frame, ( including line ) kites will have you spellbound once you get them up high over Mandan.
Plan on being there Saturday, June 3rd & Sunday, June 4th from 10 - 4 pm -
