Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club and the Barrington Park District come together to host this fabulous community event, along with over 20 other different organizations.

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, child most be present), provided by the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, and fly it in the big open field.
