Get ready to soar into the sky with your artistic creations at the first annual “Kites for Kids Day,” hosted by the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center! This exciting event will be held at Main Beach, East Hampton, on Saturday, May 27, 2023, from 2:00PM to 5:00PM.
Bring out the artist in your kids with a fun-filled afternoon of kite decorating and flying. With your $10.00 ticket, you’ll get a blank canvas in the form of a plain kite. We will supply the kites and art supplies on site, so all you need to do is arrive, show your ticket, and create your masterpiece!
“The Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center has been an integral part of East Hampton for more than 50 years caring for more than 100 children ages 18 months to 5 years old. We created this first annual Kites for Kids family fun event to reach out and celebrate our community. We are fortunate to be located in a town that possesses so much natural beauty – this seemed like a perfect way to take note of that. We are so grateful to Mayor Larsen and his team for the use of Main Beach this holiday weekend. We are looking forward to this day of fun, family, sea, sky, and a little bit of wind.” Shared Joan Overlock, EWCC’s Director of Development.
For those who wish to take home a unique keepsake, they offer limited-edition, pre-decorated kites meticulously crafted by Whitmore Kids from different classrooms. These beyond-spectacular kites are available for $100.
All proceeds from the kite sales will go towards a wonderful cause: The Nancy McCaffrey Scholarship Fund. This is a fantastic opportunity to have fun and support a noble cause at the same time.
On the day of the event, volunteers will be present to assist with kite decoration, assembly, and even untangling. There’s no need to worry about parking either. We offer free parking for all attendees, and your admission fee includes one plain kite for decorating and flying.
Hurry and get your tickets early to secure your kite! Tickets will be available on-site on the day of the event until the kites run out. But why wait? You can purchase in advance to guarantee your kite and avoid disappointment.
