Flight Day

Bring your kites or other homemade flying machines and rockets and spend time enjoying your friends, family, and Y Guides Crew in the beautiful outdoors. This event is open to the public! 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, but the city of Raleigh requires participants to register. Having a count of how many people to expect helps us plan and in the case of inclement weather, we will email all registered participants.

Date & Time

The date and time of the 2021 edition of Flight Day is still TBD. We are working with Dorothea Dix Park, the City of Raleigh and outside vendors and hopeful to be able to offer a Flight Day at some point during the summer of 2021. More details to come! 




Kites, rockets, rocket launcher pad, rocket motors, chairs, coolers, snacks, sunscreen and Crew meeting supplies. You must bring your own supplies, but we will have a kite vendor on-site selling kites & supplies and available for repairs.
