The art and sport of kite flying will take place at Squaw’s High Camp, elevation 8,200′.
Gigantic flying creatures, professional kite flyers, kite-making and face painting for the kids, and the live music are all part of the high-flying enjoyment of the 11th Annual Soaring Kites & Music Festival on Saturday, July 7, 2012.
The festival brings members of regional and national kite organizations to Squaw Valley’s mountaintop to launch dozens of elaborate and colorful kites. The Soaring Kites & Music Festival also includes live music, kite-making workshop for kids and professional kite flying demonstrations. Kite flying, which originated in 5th Century BC China, is now both a popular pastime and a competitive sport. The annual Soaring Kites & Music Festival is a celebration of the pleasure and fellowship that kite flying continues to inspire today.
The Soaring Kites & Music Festival is from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the kite-making workshop will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Guests are invited to bring their own kites or they can purchase kites at the festival. Kids of all ages can get their faces painted with whimsical designs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Bring your own kite, or buy one at the festival. The festival is free along with your Cable Car Ticket.
