Antelope Island 2013

30 January 2013 - 04:43 PM

Well it has been a busy fall and winter so far, but I am very happy about the upcoming spring and all that goes with it….
The Antelope Island Stampede Festival committee is gearing up for another outstanding year and it is my pleasure to announce the dates for this year’s event, the 5th year with kites as part of the festival.

Labor Day Weekend 2013:
August 30 - Sept 1 (Fri - Sun)
• Save the date
• You don't want to miss it!

2012 saw a lot of new people on the island and we also saw the island under extreme conditions, weather wise, to say the least. The spirit of the people who were there reigned over these conditions and a really great time was had, some special memories were made and we flew some kites. It’s hard to say what I thought about the time on the island last year without sounding like a proud father that is why I asked others to give their truthful thoughts on the event for the write up in Kitelife.
Those that were there know that the conditions don’t make the event, we make the event, most of the kite fliers and kite makers I know, know this to be true.

This year we will have a lot of the same things going on, BMX bike demos, Sky Divers, Power Paragliders, Hot Air Balloons, kites, bands all day into the night, all kinds of food, craft and entertainment vendors, kids kite making and more to come.
2012 was also the first year for the after event KiteStock. We are doing that again Monday and Tuesday night after the event, we camp out on the island and just relax, explore, swim in the lake, eat, drink, dance if you want to. Last year we had three of the most amazing nights of flying I have ever been a part of and it was cool.
So I will be posting updates as I get them, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Here is the link to the official site for AISF, http://antelopeislandstampede.com/
Thanks to those who have come and thanks to those who will come.
