Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the seventh annual Kites on the Green event has been canceled, but residents are encouraged to take part virtually. Show us your creativity and color a kite and hang it in their window, draw a kite image on their driveway with sidewalk chalk, fly a kite at their home with family, or drive-by one of the four locations to see the giant show kites.
We still encourage families to enjoy the event virtually and watch those colors fill the Johnston sky. If residents or visitors drive-by to see the giant show kites, we would ask that you please not gather and stay in your vehicle.
Below are ways in which you can participate in the virtual Kite festival:
