Kite Flight Invites You to Soar Every Spring


Get an early start on beach season

The annual Kite Flight brings Rochesterians young and old together on the shores of Lake Ontario to celebrate the art of kite flying. This year’s Kite Flight will be held on Sunday, May 5 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Ontario Beach Park.

Expert kite flyers will show-off their unique colorful creations and amaze the crowd with their skills, and the public will have ample chances to fly too.

In addition, strolling performers and performers from Roc City Circus, will entertain the whole family at this colorful free and festive event!
