You won’t need tuppence for paper and strings at the annual Kite Day Celebration in Bloomington July 22, from noon to 3 p.m. In fact, kites are free to anyone under the age of 18.

Held at the Valley View Playfield on the northwest corner of 90th and Portland Avenue South, the kite extravaganza is just that—a few hundred people of all ages who are flying vicariously through their kites.

There are plenty of activities and live entertainment throughout the afternoon, and most seasoned kite fliers bring a picnic and a blanket along to simply kick back and watch the beauties soar.
