The skies at the 33-acre Sculpture Fields at Montague Park will be filled with colossal and colorful kites, stunt kites and Rokkaku battle kites at the Spooktacular Sculptures in the Sky event on Oct. 26 from noon-6 p.m. The rain date is Oct. 27.
Sculpture Fields is partnering with River City Kites for this free event, which takes place at the park, 1800 Polk St., which turns off of Main Street on the Southside.
In addition to kites, visitors will enjoy music, activities, a costume parade for peeps and pubs (around 1 p.m.), local food trucks and a beer tent. And it’ll be volunteers from the public battling it out and above with Rokkaku fighting kites.
Some kites will be massive, spanning 20 feet, which are so large they must be anchored to the ground. Kids will be able to race parachute-like kites (bols) in what fliers call Running with the Bols. Visitors also will be able to make or purchase their own kites.
