Pacheco State Park's Eleventh Kite Day
Park: Pacheco SP
Experience the color and excitement of Kite Flying on Saturday, June 16th, 2012, and let's see how many kites we can fly up at Pacheco Pass. The eleventh Annual Family Kite Day will be held at Pacheco State Park, in a big windy field. Watch the sky dance with clever and imaginative kites—an afternoon of fun is in the air! Action is from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
There will be other fun activities including a 'Make Your Own Kite Free' table and free face painting as well as Pie Eating Contests and Bubble Gum Blowing Contests. Plus, there will be interesting tables to check out, including nature tables and a 'sun and wind' table, as well as free crafts for the kids. The Fish and Game representative will have the children make Father's Day cards. Families are encouraged to bring a kite, hats and/or sunscreen, drinking water, lawn chairs, and a picnic lunch (plus it may be cool and windy or very hot). 'Hot Dog Heaven' from Los Banos will sell inexpensive lunches as well. Drop by anytime and join the fun. (There is no drinking water at Pacheco State Park.) The only fee is the $5 state park Day Use Fee per Car.
