Beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, professional kite fliers from Kites Unlimited will launch giant-sized kites in the shapes of a lobster, frog, stingray and other creatures with tails extending more than 100 feet while kids of all ages can launch free kites available at the festival while supplies last. At 12:30 and 2 p.m., professional kite fliers will demonstrate kites controlled by multiple lines traveling up to 80 miles per hour.
While the collection of kites and tails fly high above Cross Creek Ranch, tails of a different kind will be wagging closer to the ground. The Houston Disc Dogs will perform at 11:30 a.m. followed by a pooch parade at 12:30 p.m., a 1 p.m. performance by the Houston Disc Dogs and a Furry Friends Photo booth from 1 to 4 p.m., activities that are certain to tucker out even the most active breeds.
On Sunday, the kites once again will take to the skies from noon to 4 p.m. The Houston Disc Dogs will perform at 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. while the Furry Friends Photo Booth will operate from 1 to 4 p.m. Families and leashed dogs of all sizes are invited to participate in the two days of fun.
