Lyon Township Kite Festival at James Atchison Memorial Park

Keep your eyes on the sky for some high-flying kite action during the Lyon Township Kite Festival at James Atchison Memorial Park June 1-2, 2019.

Are you looking for a unique way to kick off your family’s summer vacation? Look no further than the flair and excitement of the 11th annual Lyon Township Kite Festival.

This family fun June fair kicks off at 10 a.m. on Saturday June 1, 2019, at James Atchison Memorial Park in New Hudson. Families who get there early can snag and decorate a free kite, which they can then attempt to fly.

Can’t get the hang of flying? No worries. There are plenty of professional kite fliers on hand to demonstrate more intricate tricks.

While kites are the main draw, this fest offers more than just aerial fun. Closer to the ground, kids can enjoy inflatable bouncers, games, live animal exhibits, magic shows, merry-go-round pony rides and meet-and-greets with Cinderella, SpiderHero and Elvis – plus community vendors and live music for grown-ups.

The 2019 Lyon Township Kite Festival runs 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, June 1, and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, June 2, 2019 at James Atchison Memorial Park in New Hudson. Admission to the festival is free, but there is a $5 parking fee per vehicle.
