Sculpture Fields Contributed Photo / Circular kites surrounded in yellow tang-themed wind socks make an interesting visual display at a previous kite-flying event at the Sculpture Fields.
Put on your favorite Halloween costume and get ready for some high-flying family fun on Saturday, Oct. 26, from noon to 6 p.m. when Spooktacular Sculptures in the Sky is held at the Sculpture Fields at Montague Park, 1800 Polk St.
Management of the Sculpture Fields is partnering with River City Kites to host this free kite-flying event.
The skies over the 33-acre sculpture field will be filled with colossal and colorful kites, stunt kites and Rokkaku battle kites. In addition to kites, visitors can enjoy music, activities, a costume parade, a beer tent and buy lunch/dinner from local food trucks.
Volunteers from the public will battle it out with Rokkaku fighting kites.
Some kites will be massive, spanning 20 feet, so large they must be anchored to the ground. Kids will be able to race parachute-like kites (bols) in what fliers call Running with the Bols. Visitors may also make or purchase their own kites.
Rain date is Sunday, Oct. 27.
