I went to the Detroit Kite Festival with Colleen Donaldson and we had a blast! The organizers pulled off a wonderful and inclusive festival complete with a huge stack of kites to borrow, A kite book library, free kid-oriented kite making out of paper, free kites from sponsors, and my favorite part, a free kitemaking booth called “Will It Fly?” with stacks of reused materials for kite making.
We caught a Wind Jammers performance while the Detroit Philharmonic played, and I ran into Dave Bydlowski from the AREN Project. Colleen and Dave made it into the Detroit Free Press.
The gallery below has some notes. I also took some aerial photos.
