Pacheco State Park’s Thirteenth Annual Family Kite Day



Park: Pacheco SP

Time: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

Experience the color and excitement of Kite Flying on Saturday, June 21st, 2014, and let’s see how many kites we can fly up at Pacheco Pass.  The Thirteenth 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!  Activities are from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 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. 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.) Drop by anytime and join the fun. (There is no drinking water available at Pacheco State Park.)

The only fee is the $10 state park Day Use Fee per Car.  Annual day use passes will be accepted.  Visitors who pay at Pacheco may then go swimming down at San Luis Creek (the Forebay of San Luis Reservoir) because the Pacheco Day Use is valid there also.

This special recreation event is sponsored by California State Parks and Pacheco State Park’s Fatjo Corporation. This event marks the occasion of Pacheco State Park’s Seventeenth Year Anniversary as a State Park.  To request a sign language interpreter, other auxiliary aids or services for people with disabilities, contact Ranger Wong at (209) 826-1197 at least one week in advance.
