More than a thousand people in Waynesboro today took the phrase go fly a kite literally. It was the 7th annual kite day at Coyner Spring Park.
The day started as part of the city's Extreme Fest, but grew so large it became it's own event.
Young and old alike are encouraged to get out and enjoy the free entertainment provided by the wind's free energy.
The light wind didn't allow the usual hundred foot kites to take flight.
It also made some people, like 10 year old Celeste Willetts, have to think of special ways to get their own kite in the air.
"I was holding it up and just trying to run really fast with it because I've seen some of the adults do it and they've gotten their kites up far," she said.
Cadets from the Fishburne Military Academy were on hand making paper bag kites to give out to kids who didn't bring their own.
