ENTIAT - The Seventh Annual Entiat Kite Festival, "The Rites of String," will be held at the Kiwanis Park in Entiat, Washington along Highway 97A on Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Last year's festival had participants of all ages bringing their kites to fly the friendly skies. Over 150 free kites were given away to children to assemble, decorate and fly at the festival, and prizes were awarded for the best-decorated kites in all age groups.

This year's event is expected to be even bigger, with 200 free kites for kids. Organizers plan to have entertainment, live music, vendors for food and kite-related paraphernalia, as well as a stunt kite fliers on hand to demonstrate their skills.

The free family event is sponsored by the Entiat Valley Chamber of Commerce. For more information, contact festival chairman Alan Moen at 509-784-5101 or alanmoen@nwi.net
