Hudson River Museum Kite Festival and Contest - Hudson River Museum
Add to Calendar 21-04-2013 21-04-2013 15 Hudson River Museum Kite Festival and Contest Fly high! Bring your own, or create a cellular, parafoil, or paper kite with artist Weenie Huang and fly it in Trevor Park at the Museum. Three competitions will take place: The 50 Yard Dash: Open to children ages 7-12. Kites will fly on 50 feet of string - the string will be measured between 11am and 1pm before the contest. Contestants will race to the finish line while flying their kites. Winner must have their kite stay in the air for the whole race. The Highest Angle Kite: Youth and Adult contestants will release 200 feet of string and stand on a designated line. The kite flying at the highest angle overhead from the point of mooring wins the competition. For example, a kite flying directly over your head would win. Kite line will be measured and marked between 11am and 1pm on the kite competition field. Most Unusual Kite: Youth and Adult entries will be judged on theme, construction, and design. Judges will look for odd, striking or novel features and shapes. While some family members make kites, others can join naturalist Paul Keim at 1pm and 2pm for a walk in Trevor Park to discover the trees, flowers, plants, and insects that inhabit our suburban world. First come, first served (up to 25 participants per walk). See more kites by the Gateway Achievers, Yonkers Nepperhan Community Center, and artist Miguel Luciano. Live music will be provided by The Jazz Forum All Stars and the Nepperhan Youth Corps Band. Pizzas will be available for purchase from The Cookery Food Truck. Rain Date: April 28. The Kite Festival is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Allstate Foundation Good Hands Fund. Trevor Park comprises most of the former grounds of the John B. Trevor Estate, now the Hudson River Museum. It is a public park site shared by Museum visitors, the Nepperhan Community Center, and others. Twenty-seven years ago, Mark Morganelli established Jazz Forum Arts, a not-for-profit arts organization, and in 1985 started the Riverside Park Arts Festival. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=130860 Hudson River Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
