ROCKPORT — Thanks to support from the Onion Foundation, Coastal Mountains Land Trust will be hosting its 8th Annual Kites and Ice Cream event this September.
“The event will look very different than in past years,” said the Land Trust, in a news release. “There will not be a mass flying of kites – instead we welcome you to come and get a free kite and a free ice cream voucher (for Camden Cone) and enjoy both at a time that works for your family.”
One kite per child who registers.
Each pick up session, at Beech Hill Preserve in Rockport, will have a maximum of 50 children. To register a time to come and get your kite and ice cream voucher, go to the banner on the CMLT home page at coastalmountains.org.
Each day will have its own individual link. The links will inform you if that day’s event is full and you may try to register for another day.
“While you are welcome to go up the hill and fly your kite when you pick it up, we are encouraging you to get them and then come back or discover another preserve so that we don’t have too many people at one time,” said CMLT.
- Thursday, September 10, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
- Friday, September 11, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
- Saturday, September 12, from 10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Please park at the grass overflow lot – watch for signs. Then walk up the trail to receive your kite and voucher at the main gates. Don’t forget your mask! The Blueberry Barn Lot will be reserved for preserve visitors. Thank you for leaving your pets at home.
