The MCC-Longview Flights of Fancy kite festival 2011 soars to new heights
The weather might have started cool, but it did not stop people from coming out to MCC-Longview's front lawn to watch some of the most amazing kite displays in the Midwest.
Preliminary numbers indicate that more than 15,000 people packed the festival grounds for the fifth annual Flights of Fancy kite festival. But kite flying was not the only thing going on on campus as the festival also hosted a kite historian in the Cultural Arts Center showcasing kites from the past.
The Kansas City Kite Club once again also put on an amazing display of mega kites and stunt kites.
One of those kites flying overhead also had a camera attached shooting some amazing photos of the festival from several hundred feet in the air.
Be sure to check out all of Thomas's photos on his photos blog.

We want to thank Farmers Insurance, our presenting sponsor for helping us put together another successful festival.
This also could not have been done without the help of Kiewit and Truman Medial Centers.
