While the schedule in some ways writes itself for us all, we have confirmed dates for 2017. If you have interest in having us fly your event, please get a hold of one of us as soon as possible as we still have a bit of room.
While this last weekend did not exactly cooperate at Youngman park, we did have kites up, even in the rain!
Come join us this weekend in Papillion, at the community center – where we plan to have several members out flying. There will be candy drops – plan to come early and stay long, as this Sunday looks to be perfect weather to enjoy the day!
See you soon
While it has been a while since there was a post, we are flying out at the Omaha Parks event, Fly Into Fall at 192nd & Dodge. While it will not only be kites, this is a great family orientated event from 12 -3 PM
We will hopefully have some good pictures from this event, and our upcoming events in Papillion and LaVista the following weekends.
Enjoy the fall, and finally, cooler temperatures.
While the weather is cold, the scheduling of festivals around the Omaha area and Midwest region is heating up.
Please check out our two new schedule pages for both our Metro area festivals and Regional festivals.
We would love to come fly for your event or organization please see the Scheduling Events page for more details and contact info.
Look for more info to come on some of these events in the future.
While we had a pretty decent spring flying season, the rain did not cooperate with us for the LaVista Fly on May 3.
However, another member was lucky enough to go fly in France, and took a few shirts to friends from Italy, and so, Midwest Winds now has an Italian contingent! Its fantastic how small this world actually is, and in the end, we all share the same sky!
Have a great summer, and look for us this early fall to fly i and around the Metro area!
We are looking forward to another great fly in LaVista this weekend (68th and Harrison, at the LaVista Sports Complex), Great weather at this time is expected, and if it is like last weekend, it will be a great day to be out and flying. Please come out to the festival, as there will be more candy drops and as always, kites in the sky! Come join us to fly your own kite, however, please be mindful of the request of the club to fly in designated areas. Our kites are expensive, and need to stay by themselves, as our lines can easily be cut by smaller line. If you have any questions ask one of our members for more clarification. We encourage the public to interact with us, and if you ask nice, we will take you onto our field to see the kites up close, but our insurance does require that you are escorted by one of the club members.
New pictures have been posted int he picture gallery from the Papillion fly. A very talented photographer was more than generous to supply pictures she took of the festival. The Papillion fly was highly successful! We had pictures taken by a very talented photographer, Julanne Kowalski. Her blog is here, Check her out, as not only are her kite pictures good, but all of her pictures show exceptional talent!
There is two festivals this weekend we will be flying at, in Papillion and Bellevue, but this is VERY DEPENDENT on weather. Please check the forecast before coming out, we will try to also post to the website if these events will occur.
So as the winter has finally lost its grip on the midwest, so this gives way to our favorite time of year, Kite festival season!. We have quite a few coming up in the next few weeks, from 2 on April 26th in Bellevue and Papillion, to our annual LaVista fly. We will also be at Lake Zorinsky on Friday night, May 8th for the City of Omaha’s Spring into Summer event. This will be great, there are bands, as well as many family friendly items to do that Friday. Come out and enjoy what fun and adventures our Metro area has to offer over the next few weeks!
While 2015 is almost one month old already, we are only now getting to our fly schedule and getting it out to the public. Some highlights for us will be the addition of an annual fly in Omaha at Youngman lake in the fall. We hope to get this fly twice a year similar to what we do today in Papillion and La Vista. Enjoy the winter, because this weather will allow us only to appreciate the other seasons just that much more! See you soon -MDW…
