The weather didn't offer much wind, but beautiful blue skies made up for it, Saturday, at Independence Township Parks and Recreation's Kite Fest.

Kids provided their own wind, running up and down Clintonwood Park's soccer fields with their kites, many provided free by Great Turtle Toys.

They also enjoyed snow cones, inflatable bounce houses, and other activities provided by The Learning Experience, Planet Kids, and Mt. Zion Youth Ministry, as well as competitions such as the hula hoop contest.
