Great Midwest Balloon Fest

Giant Kites

Our giant kites are as big as school buses - yes you read right - school buses. We will have kites that are 90 feet long and 40 wide depending on the wind conditions. The kites will be flown by the Kansas City Kite Club on the Balloon Field at 5:00pm Friday, October 23 and 2:00pm-4:45pm Saturday, October 24. Kansas City Kite Club considers anyone who flies a kite in the area a member of the club if they desire to be. You may already be a member, but did not know it. We promote family kite flying fun and events. If you like kites, fly kites, make kites, or want to know more about kites, we'll help you out. It may be a small club but the KCKC has its share of nationally recognized kite enthusiasts as well as kite festivals that attract people from across the nation.
