Come join us for a day of old-fashioned, kite-flying fun at Bug Light Park! Members of the Noreasters Kite Club and KONE (Kites Over New England) will lend their expertise and offer many activities, including a “How to Fly a Kite” workshop, demonstrations of show kites, bol racing and a candy drop for the kids. The club will also have a kite hospital to help with kite assembly and fixes.
Kites will be available for purchase in the South Portland Historical Society’s museum gift shop. The museum opens at 10am. The blue grass band Tricky Britches will be playing from the museum front porch at 11am. There will also be food and drinks available for purchase at a barbecue at the museum. Bug Light will be open to the public during the festival, as well, giving a rare chance to see the inside of the lighthouse, thanks to volunteers from the South Portland/Cape Elizabeth Rotary Club.
Rain date: Sunday, May 20.
