C: Joy Buchanan (501)776-3167YCatsaline09@aol.com
The city of Benton did not buget funds for a kite festival this year, but due to an amazingly quick, thorough, and successful grass roots effort by Joy Buchanan, the Kite Festival is back on!
The 2nd Annual Benton, Arkansas Kite Festival takes place Saturday April 16th. Benton is just south of Little Rock. Flying will be at the old Saline county airport. Lots of room. They will be giving away kites. there will be vendors of all types. Come out and fly a kite and have a some good old fashioned family fun!
