Flights of Fancy

Sunday, April 21, 2024
Noon - 5 p.m.

The kites of Great American Kites & Events will take flight once again over the lawn of the picturesque MCC-Longview campus in the heart of kite month, with awe-inspiring mega kites, power kites, stunt kites and more. You'll even see the world's largest windsock, which is three stories high and 200 feet long!

Bring the whole family, along with lawn chairs or blankets and a kite if you have one. (If not, kites will be sold on site while supplies last.) Numerous food trucks will be on hand to satisfy your food and beverage cravings -- something for everyone!
