It was a beautiful day for a kite fly. Sunny, light breezes. The winds were a little calm but it was enough for all the kids to fly their free kites from the city.

MKS members were able to pull out their light wind kites. We met a lot people. Great turnout by the public as usual for this fly.  The city of Bloomington does a great job putting this event together.
