Get ready to put the winds of Lake Michigan to good use: It's time for the 32nd annual Family Kite Festival at Veterans Park.

This year, the fest is doubling the fun with two days of kite flying on Saturday, May 25 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, May 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The festival is free and open to the public.

Featured performers include Chicago Fire, The Windjammers, Josh and Zach Gordon, Dan Newman and more. The Grand Launch of over 500 kites will take place at noon, and the Kids Mad Dash will take place at 2 p.m.
