Coatesville holds inaugural Kite Day for all ages

    There are a lot of motivating factors behind Coatesville’s first-ever Kite Day: use a park that hasn’t hosted an event before, try something new, bridge generations.

    That’s how it came to be that generations old and new will be flying kites today at the Millview Apartments Playground.


    All ages are encouraged to get to the park at 10 a.m. for the free kite-flying event sponsored by the Coatesville Codes Volunteer Program, the Police Athletic League, the Weed and Seed policing subcommittee and the Coatesville Parks and Recreation Commission.

    “This is something where young people can learn from the older generation and they can work on it together,” Organizer Marie Hess told the West Chester Daily Local.

    Kids without kites can still come to test out one of the donated kites, and a barbecue and prizes will follow the flying.
