On Saturday May 20th, kites of all shapes and sizes will be soaring in the skies over historic Bishop Hill. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. approximately a dozen kites, some over 40 feet long, will be flying over the Summer Cottage, located at 507 Lindstrom Street in the northeast corner of Bishop Hill. Tony and Ann Killip, from Wataga, IL, are the proud owners of these kites and have participated in twelve or more kite festivals each year.
This kite show is free and open to public, courtesy of the Summer Cottage and Our Kites Fly. The rain date will be Sunday May 21. The types of kites flown will depend on the weather conditions. For more details, call 309 927-3359.
