High-Flying Fun

Kites for Kids returns to Main Beach in East Hampton on Saturday afternoon, once again serving as a fund-raiser for the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center.

Families can buy kites for $10 each ahead of time, then decorate them on Saturday and let them fly. A limited number of kites will be available to buy on the day of the event. For a $100 donation, a family can have what the Whitmore Center describes as a “beyond spectacular, pre-decorated kite” made by children at the nonprofit day care and prekindergarten center.

The event runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Parking on the grass lot will be free that afternoon for participants. The website for more information is
