The 32nd Annual Family Kite Festival was held for two days over the weekend at Veterans Park on Milwaukee’s Lakefront. The event was sponsored by Gift of Wings and the Kite Society of Wisconsin and Illinois. While I’ve been aware of the event over the years, I don’t recall actually attending it before. I expected a whole lot of people flying kites, but I had no idea how elaborate–and impressive–it was. Here is a selection of photos I managed to catch while I was there on Sunday.
While the kites were clearly the main event, other activities were also popular, such as rock climbing and the new swan boats in the park lagoon.
