Saratoga Independent School Hosts Kite & Flight Festival

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Independent School (SIS) has hosted its annual Kite & Flight Festival for many years. The greater Saratoga community has come to love this free, family event and will be even happier to know that it will be in-person on Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the SIS campus. SIS will comply with the health and safety measures put forth by New York State. All individuals, regardless of vaccination status will be asked to social distance and wear a mask when not eating. The event will be outside, rain or shine, with an open-air tent. This year’s Festival will provide local families the opportunity to embrace flight in a fun and creative way, with new and exciting activities, and delicious local food vendors. 

The festival will feature a hot air balloon on display (weather dependent), a climbing rock wall, flight-themed crafts, face painting, room to fly kites, DIY kites, kites and frisbees for sale, Kite & Flight swag for sale from Nourish Designs, nature trails, local food vendors such as Kaleidoscope Café, Jay’s Pizza, and Ben & Jerry’s, and so much more. The event is free to attend, and while many activities will be free, some will require a small fee.
