Event included with Museum admission.
This is a once in a life time chance to fly a kite on an airport. Normally kite flying is not permitted around airports for obvious reasons. You don’t want an airplane running into a high flying kite but on September 23 the airport is closed to aircraft traffic due to runway improvement construction and the airport management has given the Hiller Museum the green light to fly our kites.
There are three ways to join in on the fun:
Make a “Sled” kite out of paper at our kite construction table led by Museum education staff. Get a head start and get the Sled Kite template
Purchase a museum “dazzle” kite or a commercial kite in our gift shop
Bring your own kite to fly*
*If you bring your own kite we do have a few restrictions:
No combat kites
No large kites over 4 feet in diameter
Kites cannot be flown over 300 feet high
Kites are subject to museum and airport approval
Event included with museum admission. Event is free to museum members.
