Kite Fly & See-A-Truck Time:
The Annual Kite Fly & See-A-Truck events are set for 10 a.m. to noon, June 12 at Springfield Park.
The Kite Fly raises awareness of the Illinois Association of Park Districts’ Youth License Plate Flying 4 Kids program. Sales of Flying 4 Kids license plates go to park districts and recreation agencies to provide innovative, after-school programming for Illinois youth. Bring your own kite to this event, or pick up a kite at the information table while supplies last.
A modified version of our previous Touch-A-Truck Event features garbage trucks, tractors, police cars, fire trucks and a variety of other vehicles on display for kids to see (but not touch). Please remember to social distance from other event attendees. Remember to cast your vote for Best Car and Best Truck! Raffles, crafts, a DJ and more are all part of the fun of this annual event held in conjunction with the Kite Fly. Parental supervision is required.
