Description:

Go fly a kite at Victory Park Ohio's 2nd annual Over the Rainbow Kite Festival benefiting UH Rainbow Babies & Children's. The family-friendly event opens with the mass ascension of patriotic kites. Bring your own kite or buy one and color it at the event, which also includes kite flying demonstrations, candy drop for kids, music, food and more.

Demonstrations and workshops will be conducted by members of the Ohio Society for the Elevation of Kites (O.S.E.K.). O.S.E.K. was founded in 1977 by a group of kite enthusiasts. Their main purpose is to encourage new kite flyers, share ideas, knowledge, experience, building and flying tips, and to have fun.
