Flight Day

Before we know it, spring will be in the air! That means our kites will be in the air too! Join us for Flight Day at Dorothea Dix Park, sponsored by the YMCA of the Triangle Y Guides program and the City of Raleigh on Saturday, March 14, 2020.

Bring your kites or other homemade flying machines and rockets and spend time enjoying your friends, family, and Y Guides tribe in the beautiful outdoors. Y Guides participants qualify for early entry to the event at 1 p.m. The public is welcome from 2 - 4 p.m. There will be food trucks, kite vendors, and some of your favorite Y Guides and YMCA of the Triangle staff!

This is a free event and registration information will be available soon.
