JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Jamestown, North Dakota is home to the World’s Largest Buffalo, the state’s oldest standing courthouse and more.
It’s also known nationally as host to one of the largest kiting festivals in the midwest.
Created by Chris Dodson and Mike Gee, the Jamestown Kite Fest enters its 24th year this June. Gee says he wanted to share his love of kite flying with others.
With the success of the event, Dodson says you’d hard pressed to find anyone who hasn’t heard of the Jamestown Kite Fest.
The free event will feature kite building, flying demonstrations, wind instruments, and professional kite flying team 180 Go returns with 10 of their 16 members.
Dodson and Gee say 180 Go makes the Jamestown festival a priority of theirs.
There are a bunch of different kites that participants will see. Dodson and Gee point out that some of the largest kites in the world will be at the festival.
