2nd Annual Tower Wind Festival

3/30/2013 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Come celebrate the mighty river wind at the Tower the last Saturday in March. Kite and pinwheel making, shopping from "wind" related vendors and contests will help guests bring in spring. Gateway Kite Club will be participating with their sport kite flying and will offer tips with their trainer kites. We are at it again with our paper plane contest! Bring your own paper airplane to the Tower to throw it off 150 feet. The plane that travels the furthest will get a special Tower surprise. Make which ever model you want, but the material has to be only paper. These activities are free and open to the public, there is a charge to tour the Tower. See below for entire event schedule.
