The Hoosier Kiteflier's Society just got word that organizers of the "Kite Komotion" kite festival in Shipshewana, Ind. have decided that the festival will again be held on land near the Shipshewana Event Center, 760 S. Van Buren Street. This is the same location the festival has used since its inception.
Kite Komotion, our annual one-day kite festival in Shipshewana, will not be at the same location this year that it's been since its inception. As of Jan. 26 -- when HKS published the winter issue of our member newsletter ("Ride the Wind") -- organizers had not decided the exact location of this year's festival, which takes place April 30.
