A favorite family event and a harbinger of springtime in Chicago, the 22nd Annual Chicago Kids and Kites Festival returns to Cricket Hill in Lincoln Park (Montrose and Wilson) on Saturday, May 2, from 10am to 4pm. Admission is FREE.

The City of Chicago will provide free kite kits, while supplies last, for children to get creative as they build, decorate and fly their own kites.

Highlights include Team Sky-FX, professional kite flyers displaying their synchronized kite flying maneuvers throughout the day. Festival goers can also enjoy music from WeJam Academy youth DJs and activities such as face painting from Indige Face, balloon artists, arts and crafts from Plaster of Paradise, food trucks and much more. Chicago Kite will also be onsite for kite buyers.

For any last minute changes including cancellation due to unsafe weather conditions, please check Facebook or Twitter or call 3-1-1.
