A family favorite, the Chicago Kids and Kites Festival, returns to Cricket Hill at Montrose Harbor (Montrose and Wilson) on Saturday, May 2, from 10am to 4pm.

The free admission fest provides all you need to fly a kite including free kite kits (while supplies last) to build, decorate and fly your kite.

OR buy your own kite making materials from Chicago Kite, who will have a booth at the fest.

In addition to kids and family’s flying kites, kite-flying pro’s will be on hand including the Team Sky-FX, professional kite flyers who will display their synchronized kite flying maneuvers throughout the day.

Festival goers can also enjoy music from WeJam Academy youth DJs. 

Other family friendly activities include face painting from Indige Face, balloon artists, arts and crafts from Plaster of Paradise.

No need to go hungry, some of Chicago’s favorite food trucks will be on hand to keep fest goers stomaches from growling.
