Carrboro holds annual kite fly; rain lowers attendance

The Carrboro annual kite fly was held Sunday, but the sub-40 degree weather significantly hampered the turnout.

T.J. Carr, facility activity supervisor in the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department, said in previous years up to 100 people have attended.

The event was designed to be family-oriented and to get people ready for the summer events. There were certificates, ribbons and prize kites to give out, but fewer than 10 people showed up.

Stephanie Pecaut, 9, of Chapel Hill said she thought that running back and forth trying to get her kite in the air would warm her up. She said she had been attending the kite fly for years.

“As long as people come to fly a kite, we’ll be here,” Carr said.
