Comox Valley’s Annual Father’s Day Kite Fly at Goose Spit Park Sunday

Join in the fun on dad’s special day!

Come out to the 30th Annual Father’s Day Kite Fly, Sunday, June 17 at Goose Spit Park from noon–2:30 pm. Dads, moms, grandparents, friends and kids of all ages will enjoy the colours and shapes of kites flying through the sky. Registration starts at noon and is free, and open to everyone.

Trophies and prizes will be awarded in a variety of categories, such as people’s choice, stunt kite, oldest pilot, largest kite, hard-luck flyer, homemade kite, and more.

A free hot dog roast at the fire pit is part of the fun. All food will be provided. Event prizes are donated by Whale’s Tale Toys. Mosaic Vision Care will be providing free sunglasses for kids, and Cash Money staff will be cooking and handing out sunscreen and water.

As limited parking is available at Goose Spit Park, a free shuttle bus will run every 15 minutes from 11:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., leaving Brooklyn Elementary School (the old Cape Lazo School on Guthrie Road).
