After 30 years of practice. the Great Lakes Kite Festival is a spectacular event that is put on by our fine staff here at Mackite in downtown Grand Haven, Michigan. The event is hosted at the State Park beach and attracts both kite flyers and spectators alike from all over the world. Aside from the astonishingly massive kites that glide through the air all weekend - assuming the wind cooperates - there is also amazingly coordinated kite shows and ballets ongoing as well. If you somehow find yourself tired of watching the kites, take a peek inside the worlds largest outdoor kite store located on the beach, or head on down to our store where our staff is eagerly waiting to teach customers new games.
With our 30th annual GLKF approaching (May 19th & 20th, 2018), we wanted to take a moment and reflect on where we started. This collectors pin commemorates the 1999 Great Lakes Kite Competition, which has since been renamed as the Great Lakes Kite Festival. A perfect addition to any coat, backpack, laptop case... yeah you get where I'm going with that. The pin works well on almost anything, and looks good also. Pick yours up today!
Pin dimensions: 1" round
