GrieveWell is set to host the 4th Annual Kite Festival on June 20, but this time it’ll be following social distance protocols.

The Kite Festival events will be divided between digital and in-person activities, giving everyone an option on how to grieve their loved ones. Participants are encouraged to post a picture and/or memory on the GrieveWell memorial wall, then join the Fly and Remember event between 11am and noon on June 20. These events are co-hosted by Arbor Hospice and Ele’s Place.

Then, the events continue with an afternoon of kite flying from 1pm to 4pm. You can either watch professional kite flyers or find space to fly your own kite in Lillie Park. You’re also encouraged to design your own kite and submit it to the Kite Decorating Contest. Participants can also help choose winners and one lucky winner will have their design made into a real kite. This event is in partnership with Pittsfield Township and Kites and Things store in Plymouth.

Families will also be able to buy Frustrationless Flyer Kites. These kites are easy to build and fly for any age or skill level. GrieveWell can provide these kites with safe, contactless curbside pick-up. The kites can be built and decorated at home, then flown at Lillie Park on June 20.

For all of those who join GrieveWell at Lillie Park, GrieveWell and Pittsfield Township asks that all attendees follow state and CDC guidelines for social distancing, including wearing a mask or face covering.
