Free “Art With An Altitude” Kite Festival at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge March 23
KaleidoKites Sponsors Wildlife Refuge Event to Display Art in the Air to Benefit Big Cats
Eureka Springs, AR (I-Newswire) March 2, 2013 - Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) hosts it’s 23rd annual Kite Festival celebration March 23. “Art With an Altitude,” sponsored by KaleidoKites of Eureka Springs, a free family event inviting attendees to bring their own kites or buy one at the refuge.
The celebration includes vendors, contests and fun activities for parents and children. A performance by local band, The Skillet Lickers, is scheduled 1 to 4 p.m.
KaleidoKites' experts will be available to assist children in kite making and flying techniques. Donations to the refuge requested for kite making assistance. KaleidoKites will donate a Japanese "Rokkaku" fighting kite and a tiger kite for an on-site raffle, proceeds benefiting Turpentine Creek.
"Making and flying kites is a 'green' sport’ families can share. It’s wind-fueled and gets kids away from sedentary activities like TV viewing and video games," said Steve Rogers, KaleidoKites co-owner. "It's a great photo-opportunity with world-class kites worth over a thousand dollars flown during the event. These kites are works of art, which is only fitting for an artist’s community like Eureka Springs,” added Rogers.
The event is one of the refuge's most popular events each year. Admission is free for kite flying; regular admission prices apply to tour refuge wildlife on display. Proceeds finance rescue and ongoing care for over 120 tigers, lions, cougars and other wildlife that make the sanctuary a life-long home.
