It was a great day for flying a kite at the Metropolitan Community College at Longview in Lee's Summit, MO. The temperature was around 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies and a good strong breeze. We live in the apartments directly across the street from the school so it was an easy walk to get there and parking was not a problem. There were vendors, food trucks, and live music to add to the fun of fly or watch other fly their kites.
My wife, Sigrid, and friend, Edel DeMaria, enjoyed the event in comfort.
They never had much luck getting the big blue penguin off the ground.
The Festival, school, apartment complexes are located on the former Longview Farm property in Lee's Summit. The farm has a great story behind it and I would suggest Googling it to get more information.
