Spirits were high as parents taught their children how to fly a kite. The sky was ligh blue and mixed with a few clouds and the leaves rustled as the wind blew in. Shouts of glee could be heard from all drections when the children were flying all by themselves.

Kites soared through the air as young children pranced around the upper field on Sunday, Oct. 5.

The festival was sponsored by the marketing and communications department and was part of the busy schedule of Family Weekend events.

“I think it went pretty well because this is the first year that our department has sponsored the event,” freshmen Nick Weiss said. Weiss played a large role in organizing the event. “We had 750 kites and we only had about 30 left when we were done.”

The South Jersey Kite Flyers were also in attendance. One of the founders of the Flyers, Pat Mozier, said, “We were invited guests and we came to show the kites that we have made.” The kite flyers are an organization that have members all over the Pennsylvania and New Jersey area.

The event drew local residents as well as Cabrini employees. Bubbles were sprinkled through the air by a bubble machine and kids were able to fill bottles with colorful sand, creating their own art work. A clown was also on hand to consruct balloon animals for everyone to enjoy.
