Description
Making kites with kids and families is easy and fun. We want everyone to have a kite at the kite festival. These kites are simple and made in minutes - and they really do fly. We show you how to do it on the spot. The Exchange club provides all the supplies and staff there to assist and answer questions. There are 2 hour shifts (10-12, 12-2 and 2-4).

We can also use help with selling $2 kites and with signing up folks to enter the kite flying contest. All of these tasks are easy. Shift for contest sign up is 11am to 2pm.

Since the Kite Festival was postponed to March 12 we really ,really need help. Volunteers receive free parking in a reserved lot close to the event or free shuttle rides. The Shuttle stop is by the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum.

The Kite Festival raises funds to keep kids in school through CIS (Communities in Schools) and also for the Moss Pieratt Foundation which studies SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood). Any time you have to spend with us we appreciate very much.

And you get to enjoy a great day in a spectacular park with a fantastic sight of hundreds of kites in the sky! Thanks in advance if you can come down to help.
