Kites as big as a person or as small as nearly a paper bag could be seen from about a mile away as the 2nd Annual Sister Bay Kite Fest took to the skies.
The skies and weather played nice for the event, after an entire week of air quality concerns in Door County plagued the skies and air, kids were able to spend quality time outside. The Wisconsin Kite Fliers Association were flying bigger kites that kids were able to take a look at, which was something that was different from last year. Sister Bay Event Assistant Ellie Soderburg-Guger talked about the event being in its second year and how it came to be.
Over 50 kites were in the air at one point during the festival, which Soderburg-Guger said was much more than last year, and she expressed how happy she was with the turn out. Kids who attended later in the day had the opportunity to buy kites if the kite making kits were all taken. The event was so popular that even though the start time was 10:00, there were kids at the complex at 9:00 itching to build their kite and fly it.
