Kites taking over the skies for Kites Over Hoover Park

WEST BRANCH (KWWL) -

There were dozens of kites in the sky today for Kites Over Hoover Park in West Branch.

Kite performance teams and stunt kite fliers performed aerial kite tricks.

Organizers say Hoover stressed the importance of kids having fun, so today's event was all about that.

"It's great, it's a ton of fun. Audience reaction is great," said stunt kite flyer Mike Kory. "Really anybody can learn to do this, I've taught hundreds and hundreds of people in a weekend or practice and you can get the basics down and you can fly with other people. It's just so much fun."

Kids were also able to build their own kite and then fly it.

Vendors from across the Midwest participated.

They expected around 500 people.
