180 Go! Kite Performance team is a dedicated group of quad-line Stunt Kite fliers whose skill and mastery of the air brings a new level of excitement to kite events. They will be performing at Kites Over Hoover Park from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 23.

180 Go! performs precision aerial maneuvers and dynamic formations against a backdrop of popular music that engages and excites crowds of all ages. There will be a kite vendor onsite – or bring your own favorite kite to fly. The day’s activities include: children’s games and races, a candy drop, an appearance by Benjamin Franklin, kite flying and spectacular kite stunts! Weather permitting the 100 foot “big” kites will be back again this year!

Food will be available to purchase from Main Street Sweets.
