Many times people seem surprised that we have kite events in the winter. Winter is a great time to fly kites. The people of Minnesota are hardy folks that like all kinds of outdoor activities.

We have a couple of favorite events coming up in January!

Please check our event calendar for the latest schedule of events.

On January 1st is Mr. Kite's Annual New Years Day Kite Fly. It's in Lakeville, MN from 11am - 3pm at North Park. This is a good park with lots of room to fly kites and a park shelter where you can come in from the cold for lunch and fellowship. So bring a kite to fly and food to share. You will have a GOOD time! map
