Whitewater Mesa Fun Kite Flying Picnic - Sanctioned by the American Kitefliers Association - Gather up your family and friends and come to Glenwood and join us for the 15th Whitewater Mesa Fun Kite Flying Picnic.

Last year 161 people joined us so there is plenty of space without fences to tangle your kite strings, and room to park for your tailgate picnic. While you are here and for a completely different experience, walk one or all six of the labyrinths and a maze across the road at Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths. For the second time we are sanctioned by the American Kitefliers Association so have joined the international world of kitefliers.
