Family Kite Day 2006
Every year, on a special afternoon, blue skies appear and a preview of long, warm summer day breezes carry a multitude of kites - giants to minis - aloft. This is Family Kite Day which has become an annual tradition as families from the greater Tri-City area gather to listen to music, watch a magic show, build and fly kites, marvel at huge kites and participate in carnival games and jump houses. Throughout the afternoon, a giant kite will lift and release a treasure of candy and prizes for kids of different age groups. This wonderful afternoon of fun and entertainment is made even better since parking is plentiful and FREE and all activities are FREE.
Family Kite Day will be held this year on Saturday, May 13 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Sportsfield Park next to Silliman Center (6800 Mowry Avenue in Newark). For more information, call (510) 742-4400. Look for a complete schedule and directions in next week's issue of the Tri-City Voice.
