Join us at Lighthouse Island, March 9th & 10th for the MYC Snow Kite Open! You do not need to snow kite to join in the festivities. We will have snow kiting races in front of LHI, but also bags and jenga, s'mores to make at the fire pits, drinks, and $5 cash lunches on the grill. If you are new to snowkiting, we will have small practices kites to learn what it is all about and even exhibition races and games to highlight what the sport is all about! Registration to race in the event is $40, spectator attendance is free.
