The Grand County Family Support Center will sponsor their second annual Kite Flying Day on May 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Old Spanish Trail Arena. This event is in support of Family Month in Utah. There will be free kites available to make, fly and take home. The entire event is free, but donations will be accepted.

There will be a table where children can decorate their kites. Adults will be available to help with kite assembly. The event will include free hot dogs, chips and a drink.

This event is one in a series to support Utah Family Month declared by Gov. Gary Herbert between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

“If you have been wishing you could tell some people to ’go fly a kite,’ but lacked a specific place to direct them, this is the perfect opportunity for you,” said organizer Dick Toll. “They will even have free kites to assemble and fly there.”

The Family Support Center can be contacted at 435-259-1658.
