When:    Sun, October 13, 12pm – 4pm
Where:    Harvest Festival & Corn Maze, 8001 109th Ave. N, Brooklyn Park, MN

One Sky One World (OSOW), also known as "World Kite Day", is the international day of kite flying where people all over the world fly kites annually on the second Sunday of October to promote world peace, friendship among all people, and awareness of environmental concerns. Minnesota Kite Society (MKS) is one of many organizations around the globe that will be observing One Sky One World by flying kites on that day.
 
We will be flying in the open field east of the Harvest Festival and Corn Maze. Kite flying is FREE. But to enter the Corn Maze will require purchasing a ticket. A portion of every ticket sold is donated to the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Here is a link to the website for the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze: www.twin​citiesmaze.com
 
The land owner will have vegetation cut low to remove burrs so people can stand and fly kites. But we do recommend that you wear shoes, socks and long pants.
 
Since the first One Sky One World event was held, millions of people all over the world have flown kites on the second Sunday of October. Please join the Minnesota Kite Society on October 13 in honoring its objectives of One Sky One World by flying a kite!
