St George Utah Kite Festival

Flying Kites for Kids in St George Utah

The Washington County School District holds an annual “Kite Festival” every year to promote reading as a habit and encourage students to engage in family-oriented physical activity. This event is held at Sun River St George Utah, which is a retirement community on the southern most end of St George Utah. Sun River is an incredible community full of very active adults. They offer a tremendous amount of amenities for their residence and occasionally open their doors to the community with evens like the Kite Festival.

Kite Festival in St George Utah

When we first showed up to this years Kite Festival we can see how big its grown over the years. This is a free event and each child receives a free kite to fly when they show up! In addition to the kite flying, there are also several games and bounce houses for the kids enjoyment. They offer food, entertainment and a whole lot of fun for the city of St George Utah. The Sun River Golf Club closed the driving range, which is where the kite flying is held. With so many champion golf courses in St George Utah, this didn’t cause too big of a heart break for those looking to play a round on Saturday afternoon. The weather was perfect for kite flying, with just enough wind to enjoy the experience, and not enough wind to make it a miserable time for us parents. One of the benefits to living here in St George Utah is there is almost always something to do with the family here in town!
