Maggiano's Frank Mots Int'l Kite Festival

The event will begin at 10:00 am and run through 5:00 pm, with the Fast Track GRAND LAUNCH of 600+ kites at NOON! Now TWO great days of high flying fun!! I am excited to announce that The Chicago Fire Kite Team from Chicago, and Team O2, precision kite flying teams, will be performing three times each day during this event. Connor and Amy Doran, top 12 finalist from “America’s Got Talent” will be our guests once again.

Yves Laforest, and the Canadian Dream team from Montreal, Quebec, will be making their 15th appearance at Mots, flying the All NEW MEGA Octopus kite, and the Giant MANTA RAY kite. The Octopus kite is 150 feet in length and 50 feet wide. TOO MUCH FUN, a four member kite flying team from Los Angeles will be featured for the second time in Milwaukee during the Mots Kite Festival. Milwaukee's own Mike Delfar and Racine’s Dan Newman, both Professional kite flyers, will also be performing..

The US Navy will be swearing in 75 new sailors on Saturday at 11:30 am. That will be fun. We will be giving away free kites to the first 100 kids that participate in the Kaplin University "KIDS MAD DASH". Imagine 100 kids launching their kites all at the same time. LOOK OUT!! Brett Williams, the Kite Whispererer, will be giving FREE KITE FLYING LESSONS. Kites and food are available for purchase during the event at the Gift of Wings Kite Store.
