24th Annual Kidz ´N' Kites finds new location in 2022

The Niagara County Youth Bureau and Niagara County Department of Social Services is pleased to announce the 24th Annual Kidz ‘N’ Kites event to take place on Saturday September 17 , 2022. This year’s location will be at North Tonawanda’s Gratwick Riverside Park.

Gratwick Park is the home of Great Lakes Kitefliers, featured guests of the event, and will bring a steady breeze off the Niagara River for Kites to fly that day! The event will take place from 11:00am - 2:00pm, with first come, first serve registration beginning at 11am. The first 500 youth will receive a free T-shirt, hot-dog lunch and kite.

“This event is a great day for youth and families in Niagara County and the surrounding area to come together and fly with us in a celebration of youth.” Youth Bureau Director Ben Bunker states. This annual event is sponsored by community organizations and local businesses to make this event 100% free for youth. Longtime partners Niagara County Sheriff’s Department will be providing Car Seat Safety checks on location, while Niagara PAL will be cooking up the Hot Dog lunches.  

Each youth will also receive giveaway coupons to local restaurants and be in the small and grand prize raffles to be drawn. Entertainment will be provided by Nels Ross from Injest Inc, who has showcased his juggling magic for over 25 years.
