Entertainment & Events
Brought back by popular demand is the fabulous jet ski Kite Team: Kiteman Productions from Orlando, Florida. If you were unable to attend last year this is one spectacle you should try to see. They are amazing! Also, on the main flying field, Utah Kite Fliers will demonstrate expert flying with their multiple stunt kites both on Friday night under the lights and on Saturday (wind-permitting) all day; the most popular feature of the Wind Fest was the Childrens Kite Making Workshop which will be in full swing this year. Also, we will again feature the Kite Garden display called Aerial Art by local kite creator Scott Hampton. On Saturday at high noon, you can witness the Parade of Flight Small Aircraft fly-over to honor the 1st Anniversary of the Wind Turbines.
The Wind Fest also features the popular Energy Expo. Vendors, businesses, and Entrepreneurs from the surrounding area will feature “green” products and practices. This Expo is unique in that you can actually test drive a Segway or a Klune Chariot, or an Electric Gem Car. There are many exciting products featured like solar camping gear, low energy stoves, conversion kits for vehicles, and more.
