27th Annual Great Lakes Kite Festival 2015
May 16 & 17, 2015
At the State Park (the beach) in Grand Haven, MI
Our biggest festival of the year! Enjoy a day at the beach as the sky is filled with colorful kites of all types and sizes. World-famous stunt kite fliers perform to music on the center flying field while kites larger than a school bus hover just to the south. Bring your own kite to fly on the open flying field at the north end of the event, or test fly the year's newest kites on one of the manufacturers' fields. Shop an amazing selection of kites and wind toys and spinners in the giant MACkite tent on the beach, the world's largest kite store for the weekend. Be sure to stop at the south end of the tent for family fun. This festival is FREE to attend, though there may be a charge to park inside the State Park. (Out-of-state residents and those who have opted not to add a recreational pass to their license plate tabs will need to pay; those who do have a recreational plate tab will get in free.)
