What a Fantastic Day!
Larry and I are absolutely astounded at the
numbers of people who turned out for Color the Wind 2018! It's hard to estimate how many came, but cars were parked
on the streets for blocks around, the city and church parking lots were full all day as was the Surf parking lot! We
have never seen so many people out on the lake enjoying the day! Local restaurants report record breaking receipts with
one actually running out of food! The number of "hits" on this website between Feb. 1 and Feb 18 totaled nearly
public reception at the Clear Lake Arts Center was very well attended and Lee Cowan and Mark Hudspeth spent several hours
there shaking hands and visiting with people. At the kids' kitemaking workshop on Saturday morning, 116 kids made their
own kites and decorated them beautifully. CBS Sunday Morning spent most of the day Friday at our home interviewing us
and filming and were at the kite festival, on the ice filming and doing interviews all day Saturday. The tentative date
for the program to air is Sunday, March 25th. I will post any change in this here on this page.
Be sure to check back often! I'll
be adding photos of Color the Wind 2018 as they become available. We'll also be posting "thank you" notes
to all those who helped make this event a success!
Thank you, Ron Miles, for sharing your wonderful photos with us!
Chris Dodson's picture proves it!
Pigs DO fly!
Lee Cowan, CBS Sunday Morning, interviewed us in our home the day before
the festival. The CBS producer, Mark Hudspeth, Craig and Mike (the
and video technicians) came at 8:30 AM for setup. Lee came at about 11:30 to begin the interview. All in all,
they were done with this at about 2:30. Craig and Mike stayed into the
evening, putting everything away and my
furniture back in
place while Lee and Mark joined us for the reception at the Clear Lake Arts Center.
They joined us and our invited guest
kite fliers for breakfast and then we were all off to the lake to get the festival started! CBS stayed with us
throughout the day, filming and interviewing people and left only after we
had finished tearing down and putting things back in
in the Lakeview Room. They, like our kite fliers, were a joy to work with!.....and they loved Clear Lake!
Don and Betty Murphy always bring lots of fun to Color the Wind! Their bouncy caterpillar
is a BIG hit with the kids who love to play under it!
Our good friends Tim and Lynn Warren who came all the way from Paw Paw, Michigan to help us
out! Tim is one of "Larry's Lackeys and Lynn made lots of young ones happy by helping them make their own kites
at the Arts Center!
First time out of the bag for Michael Sherman's new Gecko!
Who else but someone named Sean Beaver would own this one? Thanks
for coming all the way from Missouri, Sean and Stephanie
You maka me DIZZY!
