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.
