Sugar Land Kite Festival 2014

 

For the 8th year, local business owner Rick Osgood will setup a kite booth with hundreds of kites for sale, plus an extensive display of wind feathers, banners, and wind socks.  “Rick’s Darts & Games began as a kite shop in 1974, so we really enjoyed the opportunity to once again show off our kites & banners at this event.many . Although Rick’s Darts & Games has branched out into many other merchandise categories, we still stock the largest variety of kites in the Houston area.  We really enjoy the opportunity to come out to the Sugar Land Cultural Kite Festival each year.”

The event will be held at Sugar Land’s Memorial Park, located on University Drive, along the bank of the Brazos River.  Other facilities at the park include playgrounds, disc golf, gazebos, restrooms, hike & bike paths, and a dog park.
