18th Annual 92.1 VTY Country Outta Sight Kite Flight

Celebrating 18 years in Kenosha! Enjoy demonstrations of gigantic show kites, popular kite stunt teams, and more. Kids can fly their own kites as well!

The GRAND LAUNCH of 500+ kites is at noon.

For the 18th time at this event, The Chicago Fire Precision Kite Team will be performing. They are a precision dual line kite flying team, and they will be performing three times each day.  They are the world-renowned professional kite flying teams from Chicago. In addition to Chicago Fire, Fire & Ice and the Quad kite team, 180 GO, will also be performing. Milwaukee’s own professional Kite flyer, Paul Koepke, will be performing with FIRE & ICE.  The giant Kites of Alex Dagenais, from Montreal, Canada, will be making another appearance with their Super Giant Octopus kite, along with a MEGA 150 ft Octopus kite.

New this year: two giant 100-foot kites, shaped like a full-size whale will be introduced for the first time in Kenosha.

Coming back again this year, Connor Doran from America’s Got Talent will be flying indoors at two local schools on Friday, May 31st, and on both days of the event at Kennedy Park. 

Tom and Kathi Deck will be on hand for the seventh time with their giant Bubble machine. This is one of the largest and longest running bubble machine in the country. 

We will also be giving away free kites to the first 100 kids that participate in the City of Kenosha’s “KIDS MAD DASH”.  The Kids Mad Dash is 100 kids launching their kites all at the same time. The winner is the first kid that reaches the highest altitude in 60 seconds. LOOK OUT and LOOK UP!

This family event is FREE to all, with FREE parking. Kites and food will be available for sale at the park. 

The festival is presented by 92.1 VTY Country, Kenosha News, the City of Kenosha, the Kite Society of Wisconsin & Illinois, Gift of Wings, Magnum Radio, and WRJN, 1400am radio, and the Wyndham Garden - Kenosha Harborside Hotel in Kenosha.
