Kites take to the sky at annual event
On Sunday, Sept. 22, more than 25 kites dotted the blue sky for the 2nd annual Family Fun Fly at Highview Meadows Community Park. The warm weather and excellent wind made an ideal outing for people of all ages. Organizer Catherine Olson said, “Many people came with bundles of two or three kites to try out.” Folks from the Minnesota Kite Society came to Sunday's event with big kites, helpful hands, and joyful spirit. Kite enthusiast Anthony Markunas also had many of his own kites to share and display, including speedy stunt kites. Shown with their lotus kite, are Annette and Wayne and Petersen from River Falls.
