Kites of all sorts will fill the skies in the early days of spring during the annual Chickasaw White House Kite Fly. The event is hosted in honor of former Chickasaw Gov. Douglas H. Johnston, who enjoyed flying kites with his family. This event will be open to the public at no charge, guests may bring their own kites or fly one provided by the White House staff. The Chickasaw White House grounds are ideal for flying kites, with open fields and no telephone or electric lines to obstruct flight.
Various games and activities, including tow sack races, will be part of the event. Refreshments will be included.
