Micah Williams of Port Hardy partakes in the Kite Festival at Carrot Park June 13.

Kites fly at annual fest

A Kite Festival took place in Carrot Park on June 13

A Kite Festival brought children and parents alike to Carrot Park on June 13. The festival celebrated kites and the windy day was perfect for them to soar.

Event organizer Candy Nomeland said that her intention for the day was to get kids and families out to the park to have fun. The activities were not limited to kite flying, as little people enjoyed rock painting, bubbles, and crafts of all kinds.

“A big lovely mess,” is how Nomeland enthusiastically described the lighthearted event.

The festival was the result of significant community support, including tables and funds for kites donated by the Port Hardy Lions Club, watermelon from Overwaitea, and hot chocolate from Busy B.

Prizes at the event included a huge kite, books, a phone speaker, and a Ford baseball cap from Dave Landon Motors.
