(Aberdeen, April 26, 2011)— Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union [APGFCU] proudly sponsored the sixth annual Bel Air Kite Festival at Rockfield Park on Sunday, April 11, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., attracting over 1,000 avid kite enthusiasts, new kite fliers, and curious spectators of all ages.  The festival was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 10, but was delayed until Sunday due to rain.

Over 200 kites of all shapes, colors, and sizes were distributed to participants free of charge, courtesy of APG Federal Credit Union, setting the skies over Rockfield Park ablaze with vibrant colors and high-flying action.  Participants were also treated to music by a local DJ and refreshments from Domino’s pizza.

Allen Ault, founder of the festival, stated, “I love seeing the joy on peoples’ faces, both young and old.  I feel great pride in giving something to the community.  The festival has grown over the past six years because of the tremendous support of APG Federal Credit Union, the Town of Bel Air, the Wings Over Washington Kite Club, and my friends and family.”

Held during National Kite Month each April, the festival promotes the joys of kite flying as a recreational pastime. For more information about the Bel Air Kite Festival, call Allen Ault at 410-838-4781.
