April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The legendary Flights Of Fancy community kite festival is back! Great American Kites & Events will take flight over the lawn of the MCC-Longview campus in the heart of national kite month, with awe-inspiring mega kites, power kites, stunt kites, and more including the world’s largest windsock – three stories high and 200 feet long! Each year amazing new colorful creations and designs fly in the skys over the campus lawn.
Amazing food verdors, corporate sponsor booths, community crafters, live DJ music, kite making, and much more!

For inclement weather information the day of the event, please check our Facebook event page or the main event website at https://mcckc.edu/events/flights-of-fancy.aspx

MCC-Longview asks, for the safety of our festival-goers, that guests do not bring pets, glass or alcohol to Flights of Fancy.

As a courtesy to our neighbors, please refrain from parking in the New Longview shopping area as that parking area is reserved for New Longview customers. Ample parking for MCC-Longview Flights of Fancy guests will be available on the MCC-Longview campus. Parking lots will be open on the north and east sides of campus. This is a must see event and legendary free family friendly festival in the Kansas City area.

At each sponsorship level we offer a comprehensive benefits package to our partners to ensure that your support is recognized throughout the community.
