15th Annual Kites over Lake Michigan

September 5, 2020 @ 11:00 am - September 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Change of venue for 2020

Experience one of the largest kite festivals in the Midwest: incredible displays of giant show kites; precision stunt teams performing amazing aerial ballet with their kites; and spectacular and colorful ground displays!

One very significant change this year: KOLM moves inland after record lake levels leave too little beach to contain the event.

Saturday night features a mass release of sky lanterns followed by a fireworks show (weather permitting). Buy sky lanterns at the beach. Please note: only 100% biodegradable sky lanterns may be released; those with metal wires and candles are not allowed. On Sunday, another day of kite flying and performances, with free kite-making for kids from 9 to 11 a.m.

There is no specific schedule of activities (except for kids’ kite-making on Sunday); activities are dependent upon wind conditions. We operate on “kite time;” if the wind is light, the stunt teams can still fly with their low-wind kites, but the giant show kites will likely be grounded until the wind picks up. Activities like running of the bols and glider drops will occur regardless of wind condition.

A shuttle bus will provide transportation from Walsh Field (2201 Polk St.) to the high school from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
