KITE WORKSHOP SCHEDULE This is the main fund raising method for putting on the Cleveland International Kite Festival. In an average year, workshops are scheduled in parks, at schools, club meetings, and events. We do not have sponsors paying for tents, park fees, sound systems, etc. So if you have wondered how this works, call Bob Lockhart, Workshop Coordinator at 216-731-3639. It takes about 20 minutes to learn how to help a kid make a sled kite. After you've done five, you are an Expert, and we need more Experts!! Call Bob Lockhart if you can help with any of the CWS at 216-731-3639
Free Fly at Edgewater. “Mother may I?”

CHARDON ARTS FESTIVAL Another show & tell. We will have a tent and ground display on the Square in Chardon - south of I-90 in Geauga County. This is the arts group's first festival, themed about flight. The Artists themselves will be down Main Street in various shops. The Square is ringed with trees (they hold a maple sugar fest there), so flying kites there may be very limited - think small.
