A day in pictures: MCC-Longview’s Flights of Fancy kite festival

Animals take to the sky at MCC-Longview’s Flights of Fancy Mega Kite Festival on April 15.

Thousands of visitors (about 35,000!) turned their eyes to the skies for Metropolitan Community College-Longview’s Flights of Fancy Mega Kite Festival on Saturday, April 15.

It was a pretty gusty day, with sustained winds between 20-30 miles per hour, but the sun was shining and patrons were wowed by the kites and the classic cars on display at the campus’ car show.

Enjoy this gallery of images from the event (photos by MCC-Longview’s Clay Bussey). More images are available in the Flights of Fancy Facebook album. Click here for that.

We had a great time and look forward to seeing everyone again next year! Click an image to see it bigger.
