This free festival, which will be held rain or shine, is sponsored by SUNY Sullivan in conjunction with Jeff Bank, Thunder 102, the Sullivan County Visitors Association and WSUL/WVOS Radio.
The day will also feature live music by Cathy Paty. Local service organizations and vendors selling arts and crafts, and jewelry and other items will be on-hand. Free kites will be distributed to the first 200 children.
In addition to the kite festival, other events on campus that day include the annual Fisher Film Festival (in the Seelig Theatre), and the student/faculty art show, presented in the deHoyos Gallery and featuring submissions from SUNY Sullivan students and faculty. The Simulation and Gaming Development program will also host one of its popular “Game Jam” sessions from 9 am to 6 pm; registration is required, please visit www.sunysullivan.edu/game-jam.
