  • Join us in our fifth year in celebration of the Washoe Zephyr as Something
    in the Wind features expert kite flyer Cameron Kauffman along with his
    family. From 9:00 am until 5:00 pm both days, the
    Kauffman’s will demonstrate several models of their large and unusual kites,
    as well as answer questions.  The public is also welcome to bring kites to
    fly and learn from the visiting experts throughout both days. A limited
    number of kites will be available for purchase.

    Also on both days, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, elementary-school aged
    children can participate in several simple wind-related craft projects
    hosted by the Carson Valley Arts Council, and make their own kites (while
    supplies last) with the help of Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch volunteers.
    All craft supplies will be provided.

    Dangberg Home Ranch volunteers will once again work with attendees in making
    and flying giant and artistic bubbles.

    This year’s event will also include a “Kite Giveaway” for children.  Each
    elementary-school aged child that attends can enter a giveaway drawing for
    the chance to win a new kite.  The drawing will take place 3 times each day
    during the weekend, once at 10:00 am, Noon and 2:00 pm.  Participants must
    be present to win.

    “Colorful wind banners will adorn the park and giant bubbles will blow
    about, as families are encouraged to bring a picnic and spend all day to
    play”, says Events Manager Kim Harris.

    Something in the Wind is sponsored by Douglas County, E.L. Cord Foundation,
    Francis C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation, Carson Valley Accounting,
    Full Circle Soils & Compost and Horse Tales Magazine.

    This is a free outdoor event. Please no dogs, legitimate service animals
    only.
