RE: 30th Annual Cool Fool Kite Festival

Here we go again!! Flying High On Milwaukee’s Lakefront!

On Sunday, January 1, 2018, New Years Day, The Kite Society of Wisconsin and Illinois, Your Milwaukee County Parks, and Gift of Wings are presenting the COOL FOOL KITE FESTIVAL ... 31 Years, in Veterans Park on Milwaukee's lakefront. The event will begin at 11:00 am, through 5:00 pm. 

This is a free fly and we will be joined by a group of local professional ice carvers, the Quiet Ice Carvers, who will be carving ice designs throughout the afternoon. We will also be offering a 30% off ceiling sale on any kite on the ceiling, and the kite store will be open selling kites and Johnsonville Brats. Several performers like Brett Williams will be on hand flying his stack of Revolution kites, along with the giant kites of Yves LaForest, including the giant Octopus kite. This family event is FREE to all, with FREE parking and FREE coffee and Hot Chocolate.

Free Kite flying lessons will be offered and kites are available for sale during the event. We also plan on making some free kites for the kids!! I sure would appreciate if you would put our event in your community calendar or maybe do a story on this great tradition. I can be reached at 414/305-3145 and feel free to check out for more information.
