Up, up and away...The fun-filled family event is a celebration of springtime in Chicago.

Once again, the City of Chicago will provide kite kits for children to build, decorate and fly, while supplies last. Other activities include face painting, balloon artists and a kite-shaped refrigerator magnet craft. The Big Kite Candy Drop, a piñata-like kite filled with candies that drop from the sky, will take place during the afternoon, weather permitting.

Kite Harbor will be onsite for kite buyers, and professional kite flyers will demonstrate their skills with oversized and uniquely-shaped kites.

The 18th Annual Chicago Kids and Kites Festival is organized by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and sponsored by The Boeing Company, Chicago Transit Authority, CLIF Kid and Whole Foods Market. For more information, visit, join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter (@ChicagoDCASE) or call 312.744.3316 (TTY 312.744.2964).
