“We encourage the whole family to come out to this award winning festival and spend a day in the great outdoors. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, relax in the sun and have fun flying kites, watching kite performances, take part in the kite design contest or make a free kite and learn to fly it. There will be inflatables for the children, great food and music,” said Kathy Gautreau, Director of Special Projects and Events for the West Baton Rouge CVB.
“We are so proud to have been selected as the Louisiana Festival of the year in 2011. It is because we offer a family friendly event and try to add something new and exciting every year,” said Sharon Stam, Director of the West Baton Rouge Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The GO BIG OR GO HOME Kite Team and Austin End of the Line flying teams will perform ballets in the sky using 2-line kites. Northeast Rev Riders will be featured using 4-line kites.
They all will be performing throughout both days of the event.
