The popular "Airwaves" kite festival at Voice of America Park north of Cincinnatti has returned ... sort of.
Butler County Metroparks has partnered with venerable Cincy-area kite club People Interested in Getting Stuff Aloft (PIGS Aloft) to create a new but smaller event this year, "Kites 'N MPX" (Kites and Metroparks).
It will be a one-day, five-hour event (April 11, 2015, noon to 5 p.m. ET) at the same park that hosted the now-defunct "Airwaves" festival for so many years.
Butler County Metroparks has created a PDF flyer for the event.
180 Go! Kite Team member David Kovacs, of Dayton, Ohio, died unexpectedly Feb. 5, 2015, according to a post on his Facebook page. Although "Dayton Dave" lived in Ohio, he was an ardent member of the Illinois Kite Entusiasts kite club. A brief bio appears on the 180 Go! Web page.
Hoosier Kitefilers Society expresses our deepest condolences to all who grieve David's passing.
