Kites of all shapes, sizes, colors and themes will fly over frozen Lake Harriet.
Minnesota Kite Society experts will demonstrate their skills maneuvering spectacular kites throughout the day, and offer their expertise to kite flying enthusiasts and to those who are new to the pastime. Bring your own kite, or buy an inexpensive one at the lake.
Other activities for all ages: ice fishing, horse-drawn wagon rides, snowshoeing, and a marshmallow roast.
The DNR Ice Fishing Expo will teach kids ice fishing skills and safety tips; the DNR will provide all the equipment needed to participate.
Festival sponsors include the MPRB, Minnesota Kite Society, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fishing in the Neighborhood Program (FiN), East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association (EHFNA), People for Parks, Linden Hills Neighborhood Council (LHiNC) and the Nicollet-East Harriet Business Association (NEHBA).
