Kite enthusiasts invited to kite day at a Wabash Valley historical park.
Beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 30, the rangers and volunteers of the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park, (GRCNHP), along with the GRCNHP Youth Advisory Council, will provide the opportunity for the public to “Soar into the Sky” with their kites.
Every year in Washington, DC, thousands of people gather to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Part of the annual festival is a Kite Day celebration, where visitors from all over the country travel to the National Mall and fill the air with these wonders of the sky.
GRCNHP wanted to bring this taste of Washington D.C. to the shores of the Wabash River.
Kite enthusiasts are invited to the grounds of the Clark Memorial for an afternoon of kite flying and other activities.
This event will be open to kite fliers of all ages and abilities.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own kites to show off and fly. Don’t have a kite? That is okay too. A number of kite-making kits will be available for kids to build their very own diamonds in the sky.
A separate kite-making area will be available, where visitors will not only be able to build their kites, but also will be able to decorate them.
The celebration will begin at the GRCNHP visitor center located at 401 S. 2nd St. Vincennes. There are no fees for any activity throughout the day and the park grounds are open to anyone.
The event will last until 4 p.m.
