Chattanooga Now Go fly a kite at Tennessee Riverpark

March 7th, 2018 by Staff Report in Chattnow Outabout

We're not stringing you along when we say Sunday's fun in the Tennessee Riverpark is over your head.

The Chattanooga Indian Festival Association is sponsoring a kite festival on Sunday, March 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Riverpark, 4301 Amnicola Highway.

Jay Patel says the community is invited to join CIFA members for a day of flying or simply watching the brilliantly colored kites against the sky. The event is cancelled if raining.

CIFA will have kites for sale, if you don't have your own, and there will be a food court selling concessions.

Here are five things to know before you go:

» Admission is $20 per vehicle with up to eight passengers. Larger vehicles, such as 15-passenger vans, will require two parking passes. No vehicles larger than a 15-passenger van will be allowed in this event.

» No cooking is allowed in the park; however, you may bring a picnic lunch.

» No alcohol, tobacco or cooking equipment allowed.

» Guests may bring lawn chairs, picnic mats, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen lotion, jackets, Band-Aids, medicine. Guests are expected to pick up after themselves before leaving the park.

» Purchase tickets at www.eventbrite.com. Once purchased, a confirmation email will be sent from Eventbrite on behalf of CIFA Events.
