Our weather forecast looks beautiful for the 7th Annual Barrington Area KidFest & Kite Fly coming up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 5th! The FREE, fun, family event gets your entire crew outside and moving. Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, Leave No Child Inside and the Barrington Park District come together to host this fabulous community festival, along with over 20 other different organizations.

This is a FREE event located at Citizen’s Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of the registration tents to get your All Access Wristband to participate in all of the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10), provided by the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, and fly it in the big open field.

At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Climb a tree, build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Rotary Grill!

There is something for everyone to enjoy and its ALL FREE! This event is very popular and parking is limited. FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.
