Naperville Park District has cancelled the Kite Fly event, which was scheduled for Sunday, August 30 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at Frontier Sports Complex, due to the elevated COVID-19 positivity rate in Will County. Although this is an outdoor event, based on participations at previous kite fly events, the Park District was concerned that attendance levels might be too high given current conditions.
The Kite Fly event was going to be a simplified version of the annual Frontier Kite Fly Festival, typically held in June.
“Although Frontier Sports Complex offers plenty of space for kite flying under normal circumstances, given the rise in cases in Will County where Frontier Sports Complex is located, the Park District is taking precautions to limit gatherings by cancelling the Kite Fly event,” said Director of Recreation and Facilities Brad Wilson. “We look forward to bringing back the popular Kite Fly Festival event in 2021.”
The Park District continues to follow the guidelines relative to COVID-19 and reminds residents and Park District participants of its COVID-19 updates and participation guidelines that can be found at www.napervilleparks.org/coronavirus.
