The Lake Park Kite Festival takes place on Saturday March 17th from 10am to 2pm. It’s held at Founders Park, a large level open space in the center of some of Lake Park’s residential areas.
I visited the Kite Festival a few years ago. Brightly colored kites filled the air in Founders Park. It was fun to watch families launch their kites with kids of all ages trying their hand at keeping the kites aloft. A local kite-flying club provided kite-flying demonstrations. The festival included other activities for children as well.
Lake Park is a small town in Union County NC that was developed as a master-planned new town. The master plan included a number of opportunities for outdoor recreation in a series of parks, lakes and open spaces throughout the town. The heart of Lake Park is the Village Green where ringing of the bells in the Bell Town greets visitors. A community center with swimming pools, a water playground and tennis courts overlooks the Village Green. Other parks, large and small, provide playgrounds, walking trails and opportunities for play and relaxation.
