Post date: Oct 9, 2012 5:18:13 PM

When: Sunday, October 14, 2012 noon - 4pm

Where: Twin Cities Harvest Festival, SE corner of Hwy 169 & 109th Avenue N, Brooklyn Park, MN (map)

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 that will be observing One Sky One World with a kite fly.

We will be flying in the open field next to the Twin Cities 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 Minnesota Military Family Foundation. There is an early bird discount available for the maze if you buy your ticket before noon. Here is a link to the website for the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze:

The land owner reports that the field is better this year with fewer sand burrs. But we do recommend 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 14 in honoring its objectives by flying a kite!

If interested in getting together for dinner afterwards, we're thinking of stopping at Q Fanatic in Champlin after the fly. Let Dean know if you plan to join us so we can give the restaurant a count ,
