The sunny afternoon and the brisk wind from the southwest provided an excellent backdrop for the first Kite Fest.
The Flying Buffalo Project kite collection will have a test flight from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday in a field west of the Audubon Center on South Billings Boulevard.
The large buffalo that Billings artist Angela Babby painted on rip-stop nylon is dramatic.
The “Visions of Lewis and Clark” kite display that originally hung in Billings Logan International Airport has been selected by the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft to be the signature exhibit of the museum’s tribute to the Corps of Discovery members who were from the Louisville area.
192 United Nations countries, all 50 U.S. states represented in display
