3rd Annual Halifax Citadel Fun Fly

Join us for single, dual and quad lined kites; inflatable creatures; giant kites; traction demonstrations and so much more!

Halifax Area Recreational Kiters (HARK) will be hosting their 3rd Annual Fun Fly at Citadel Hill in Halifax, NS on Saturday June 3, 2006. Bring your family, friends, neighbors, kites and a picnic and enjoy Halifax’s premier kite event of the season!

The Dieppe, NB Skylines Kite Club and kiters from around the Maritimes have been invited to fill the sky with color! Gary Mark of the Toronto Kite Fliers is scheduled to make a guest appearance with his giant kites and this year’s ground display of wind-filled creatures is sure to be a hit with children and adults alike!

Members of Atlantic Winds Adventure will be on site giving power kiting demonstrations throughout the day for those who enjoy the added thrill of traction kiting.

Come join the fun!

There’s something for everyone!

This event is free to all who wear a smile!
