    Cary Park District Participating in Statewide “Flying 4 Kids” Month

    Cary, Illinois – Be a part of filling our sky with a rainbow of color at the annual Kite
    Fly at Lions Park on Saturday, April 14 from 10-11 am in celebration of National Kite
    Flying month. All are welcome to join us for this free event!

    Gather your family and invite your friends of all ages for a morning of outdoor fun to
    welcome spring in a festive, flying fashion. Bring your favorite kite from home and
    participate in the fun on your own or join in a kite flying contest including categories
    for biggest kite, smallest kite, most unusual kite and others. Register on site to
    participate in the contest.

    Participants must bring their own kites and all children must be accompanied by an
    adult.

    Cary Park District hosts the annual kite fly as part of the Illinois Association of Park
    Districts’ (IAPD) statewide “Flying 4 Kids” month celebration organized to raise
    awareness of the Park District Youth License Plate, which features a colorful kite.
    Proceeds from the sale and subsequent renewals of each plate is placed into the

    IAPD Power Play Grant Program, a grant fund to benefit beyond-school programming
    for youth at park districts and recreation agencies throughout Illinois.
