The Los Alamos Arts Council wishes to thank the many people who came together to make the 17th Annual Los Alamos Arts Council Kite Festival sponsored by Los Alamos national Bank such a great success.
The festival could not have happened without the support of so many people. We want to thank Los Alamos National Bank (LANB), the sole sponsor, for generous funding, easy to build flyers, and t-shirts.
We also want to thank the numerous volunteers from LANB, LAHS ROTC, National Honor Society, the County Parks and Rec Department, and various other groups and individual volunteers. All of you made a huge difference in the number of kites we were able to build and decorate each day.
Thank you to those that helped with set-up and take-down, as well as the small odds and ends that happened behind the scenes. Each of you contributed to success, and we thank you for all that you did!
We are grateful to several kite enthusiasts from out of town who brought beautiful and unusual kites and banners to make the event more colorful. Of course, we also want to thank the members of the community for coming out to make a kite, fly a kite, listen to the music, or just look at the awesome view in the sky.
If you would like to help with the Kite Festival for next year, please contact the Los Alamos Arts Council office at 505.663.0477 to sign up. Mark your calendars for May 15-17, 2015.
