9 November, Victorville, Ca area
an excerpt from Glens earlier note:
Kids and Kites…They go together. On Saturday, November 9th, we’ll be at the grand reopening of Horseshoe Lake in the County of San Bernardino, near Victorville and Hesperia, off I-15. This will be the first of what will hopefully become an annual event. Expect Show Kites, Sport Kite Demos, Kids Craft Kites and Flying, Tail Chases, Candy Drops, Kite Hospital, Vendor Lesson Area and a Kite Shop Vendor. I’ve been to the site and you will be hard pressed to find a better venue for this type of event. Flyer is attached.
