Chico Kite Day

*Kite Day has been postponed to Sunday, April 30th!

Celebrate spring at the end of a string! See the amazing spectacle of hundreds of colorful kites flying at the same time. Kite Day is a fun and free event for all ages to enjoy and celebrate the return of spring. We'll have FREE kites for the first 100 kids, so get there early!

Chico Velo will be there with their free bike valet service, so ride your bike and don't worry about parking!

Date: Sunday, April 30th
12–4 PM
Location: Community Park, 1900 Dr Martin Luther King Jr Pkwy, Chico, CA 95928

BOB FM will be playing music throughout the afternoon alongside activities like:

  • kite flying (of course!)
  • face painting
  • bounce houses
  • lawn games
  • and more!

Our friends from the Gateway Science Museum will be teaching how winds are generated to fly a kite with a hands-on experiment about clouds, and the Chico Children's Museum will be there, too. For a special treat, come sing “Chim Chim Cheree” with Mary Poppins and Bert from 1–3 PM for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious time!  

Several popular Fork in the Road food trucks will be on hand with some delicious grub.
