Winter fun with strings attached – for kite flying and ice fishing

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will host the 13th Annual Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival in January 2015. The Kite Festival will take place on the north end of Lake Harriet near the Bandshell, located at 4135 W. Lake Harriet Parkway. Kites of all shapes, sizes, colors and themes will fly over frozen Lake Harriet. Admission is free.

Festival sponsors include the MPRB, Minnesota Kite Society, Tips Outdoors, East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association (EHFNA), People for Parks, Linden Hills Neighborhood Council (LHiNC) and the Nicollet-East Harriet Business Association (NEHBA).

Minnesota Kite Society experts will demonstrate their skills maneuvering spectacular kites throughout the day, and offer their expertise to kite flying enthusiasts and to those who are new to the pastime. Bring your own kite, or buy an inexpensive one at the lake.

Tips Outdoors will teach kids ice fishing skills and safety tips. Equipment and permits for children will be provided.
