The following provides the information for the 26th Annual "Kite Day in the Park", held at the Louise W. Moore Park in Easton, PA on May 7, 2016.  I have been attending and helping out for the last several years.  Hosted and run by great people for a good cause, by introducing kiting to the attending families.  Great field for me to play with my numerous glider kites.  Hope to see you there.

Yours in kiting,

Doug

Just a gentle reminder this event is next weekend.  Quite an accomplishment for Andy and his team in running this event for the 26th year!  Glad to be able to help out.  Also, it's a great park for my glider kites!

Yours in kiting,

Had a great time attending the 26th Kite Day in the Park, Easton, PA, on Saturday, May 7 2016.  Prior to the event, we had rain almost every day for over a week in the Northeast.  There was light rain driving to the event, which ending during the morning.  The sky was overcast for most of the day and became partly cloudy in the afternoon.  The wind was light and changing in direction throughout the day.  Great weather for light wind single line kites and glider kites!  It was great to see everyone again at the event.  Kurtis Jones and his family made it this year.  He was quite impressed at the size of the open fields and how well the grass was maintained at the Park.  Art Babiarz and his lovely wife came to help out.  Congratulations to Andy and his team planning and running this event for 26 years!   Grin

The following provides a link to a short 41 second video of the event, taken by The Morning Call.  They caught me playing in the morning with the Bird of Prey 96, at 19 to 20 seconds, and 23 to 29 seconds.
