Longview’s Tami Morrow doesn’t just work Community Education. She’s involved in a well-known annual event, The Kite Festival: Flights of Fancy.
“The Kite festival this year is going to be exciting because we will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lee’s Summit. There will be a 150 balloons released for the occasion,” she said.
The Kite Festival started nine years ago, and Morrow is organizing the event. Thousands of people around the Midwest attend the festival, where you will also find the Kansas City Kite Club’s 300-foot kite.
Visitors will also enjoy different foods, games, face-painting, balloon artists, music and more.
The festival begins at 10 a.m. on April 18, 2015 at Longview field.
