Kite Flight 2009(2)

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 7, 2023  from noon to 4 p.m. at Ontario Beach Park.

Expert kite flyers will show-off their unique colorful creations and amaze the crowd with their skill, but the public will have a chance to try to fly too. Recreation on the Move, the City’s mobile recreation center, will be on hand throughout the day, and City Recreation staff will provide free, kite-building workshops for youth 12 and under.
