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.

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. 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

This event was originally scheduled for Saturday, March 14 from 1 - 4 p.m., but has been postponed due to the situation surrounding COVID-19. We will update this page with rescheduling information as soon as it becomes available.
