A favorite family event and a harbinger of springtime in Chicago, the 19th Annual Chicago Kids and Kites Festival presented by COUNTRY Financial returns to Cricket Hill in Lincoln Park.

New this year, the Windjammers International Kite Team will thrill the crowd with their synchronized kite flying maneuvers, and once again, the City of Chicago will provide kite kits for children to build, decorate and fly, while supplies last.

One of the highlights of the festival is the Big Kite Candy Drop - a piñata-like kite filled with candies that drop from the sky - will take place in the afternoon, weather permitting. Other activities include face painting, balloon artists and crafts.

Chicago Kite will be onsite for kite buyers, and professional kite flyers will demonstrate their skills with oversized and uniquely-shaped kites.
