Kite Fes­ti­val to fly in An­caster July 9

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

The An­caster Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety is launch­ing its first Kite Fes­ti­val July 9.

Deb Lum, chair of the fes­ti­val, said a kite-fly­ing event has been talked about for a long time and fi­nally came to fruition this year.

“With all the breezes we get out here, it’s the per­fect spot,” she said. “And it will keep the Canada 150 party soar­ing.”

The day will fea­ture a kids’ kite-mak­ing clinic, bub­bles, bal­loon an­i­mals, face paint­ing, demon­stra­tions by pro­fes­sional kite fly­ers and plenty of ven­dors.

“Even if peo­ple don’t want to fly a kite, they’re wel­come at the fair­grounds to come and take a look around,” said Lum.
