(Saturday) 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


Two Rivers High School

4519 Lincoln Ave


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 to Two Rivers High School after record lake levels leave too little beach to contain the event. Overflow parking will be available at Walsh Field (2201 Polk St.) and a shuttle bus service will provide transportation to and from the high school 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Number of riders is limited on each shuttle run, and masks must be worn on buses.


A fireworks show is scheduled 8 p.m. Saturday! Fireworks will be shot off behind the Coast Guard Station, allowing folks to spread out along the waterfront and still have optimum viewing!


Free kite-making for kids from 9 to 11 a.m. Sunday.


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. But plenty of fun activities will take place regardless of conditions!


Please note that no alcohol or tobacco products are allowed on school grounds, and this policy will be strictly enforced.
