The Great Wind Festival will provide a whirlwind of activities for families with lots of hands-on experiences. After spending the winter months indoors, we will spend the day outside, celebrating the windy weather with wind-powered activities. This year the event is sponsored by the Leawood Lions Club, a local service organization helping hundreds of men and women since 1954 to promote the betterment of our community.
The updated scheduled activities include Kites ~ Paper Airplanes ~ an Aviation Simulator ~ multiple Rocket Launching activities ~ Kite flying and Kite making ~ Soda Geysers ~ Explode-a-Bags ~ Elephant Toothpaste ~ Hammer of Thor ~ Whirligigs ~ Rain Gutter Regatta ~ and a ~Photo Booth ~. Due to the anticipated high winds, we will not have a hot–air balloon this year.
The event will also feature four (4) local bands who will play throughout the day. To learn more about the bands, visit the entertainment page.
