Kites will be soaring in the skies over MCC-Longview at the Flights of Fancy kite festival, presented by Farmers Insurance, Saturday, April 20, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. This will be the seventh annual kite festival held on the MCC-Longview campus at 500 SW Longview Road in Lee’s Summit.
The free, family-friendly event features dazzling mega kite displays by the Kansas City Kite Club and is the only festival of its kind in the region. The club will also display stunt and power kites and the world’s largest windsock. There will be fun for the young as well as the young at heart. Kids will enjoy kite making, face painting, a balloon artist and a candy drop.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and make a day of it. Bring your own kites and fly them on the lawns of MCC-Longview.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase. MCC-Longview asks, for the safety of our festival-goers, that guests do not bring pets, glass or alcohol to Flights of Fancy.
Free parking will be available on the north and east sides of the MCC-Longview campus. Please refrain from parking in the New Longview shopping area as those areas are reserved for New Longview customers.
