Seventh Annual Bel Air Kite Festival Soared with Success 

Posted on Apr 23, 2012 by APGFCU

Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union [APGFCU] proudly sponsored the seventh annual Bel Air Kite Festival at Rockfield Park on Saturday, April 14, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., attracting over 1,000 avid kite enthusiasts, new kite fliers, and curious spectators of all ages.

Over 250 kites of all shapes, colors, and sizes were distributed to participants free of charge, courtesy of APG Federal Credit Union, setting the skies over Rockfield Park ablaze with vibrant colors and high-flying action. Participants were also treated to music by a local DJ and refreshments from Domino’s pizza.

Allen Ault, founder of the festival, stated, “I love seeing the joy on peoples’ faces, both young and old. I feel great pride in giving something to the community. The festival has grown over the past seven years because of the tremendous support of APG Federal Credit Union, the Town of Bel Air, the Wings Over Washington Kite Club, and my friends and family.”

Held during National Kite Month each April, the festival promotes the joys of kite flying as a recreational pastime. For more information about the Bel Air Kite Festival, call Allen Ault at 410-838-4781.
