Minnesota Kite Society (MKS) is one of many organizations that will be observing OSOW with a kite fly.
We will be flying in the open field next to the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Corn Maze this year. The kite flying is free, to enter the Maze will require purchase of a ticket to the Maze. Here is a link to the website for the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze. The Maze has a lot of fun family activities too. http://www.twincitiesmaze.com/ (If you purchase a ticket for the Maze before noon there is a $1 discount.)
We had an excellent turn out for the kite fly. It was a beautiful, sunny day. Early on there was a light breeze but it wasn't long until we had excellent winds for the afternoon.
This year we flew in the open field next to the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Corn Maze. A special thank you to the Maze folks for letting us take over this space for the afternoon. There are lots of great family friendly things to do in the Corn Maze. The Maze is open every weekend through the end of October. Check it out! http://www.twincitiesmaze.com/
