 Hi!  Welcome to our Color the Wind website! 
We are Larry and Kay Day and we started the Color the Wind Festival to make people smile! 
The purpose of this non-profit organization is to provide good, clean family entertainment free of charge and to promote the sport of kite flying. 
We hope you will come to Clear Lake, IA on the third Saturday in February each year to join in the fun on the greatest flying field ever......our frozen lake!
As a non-profit organization, the future of Color the Wind is totally dependent on contributions from you, the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, and the many local businesses and civic groups that have been so supportive during the life of this event.   

On this site, we'll  include specific information about Color the Wind, but we'll also include photos and information on some of the other kite festivals in which we participate in the warmer months.
Each year, just prior to the Color the Wind Festival, you will find updates on the weather and ice conditions and, heaven forbid....cancellation!   These will be shown on the "Upcoming Events" page.
