Kites have long been a favourite past time for generation’s young and old. Originally from China, they were made of silk and bamboo. In the past their aerodynamic surface and ability to overcome gravity made them a resourceful tool during rescue missions, military efforts and science discoveries! Today kites can be constructed in different shapes and printed in beautiful designs. They are used for festivals, traditional ceremonies and recreational fun.
On Sunday June 3rd the Rocca Sisters Team are teaming up with The City of Burlington as the Presenting Sponsor of the 27th Annual Kite Festival! This fun filled day will take place from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Brant Hills Park located at 2300 Duncaster Drive in Burlington. Events like these are our team’s way of saying thank you to the community for all of the support you have shown us, and for making us the #1 Team in Burlington for an eighth consecutive year.
Children are encouraged to bring their creativity as they will have the opportunity to design a free kite of their own through building and decorating (while supplies last). Attendees can also take part in fantastic face painting and community displays. Little ones will enjoy exciting balloon animals and there will be tasty treats to try as you walk through the festival.
Also, make sure to stop by the Rocca Sisters Team tent where you can enter for a chance to win a prize for best kite!
Don’t miss this great opportunity to get the family together and be out in the community. For more information on this and our other upcoming June events, visit our website www.RoccaSisters.ca. We’ll see you there!
