Music and kite flying – a fun combination for July’s Fourth Friday at the Guelph Civic Museum
If the winds are right, Fourth Fridays event at the Guelph Civic Museum, get ready for stunt kite ballet with quad and dual line kites, kite displays and kids kite making activities with the Royal City Fun Flyers. Combine the whimsical tunes on the ukulele with the Guelph musician Olivia Borkosky performing at 6:30-8pm and you are in for a fun evening!
The Royal City Fun Flyers are a group of people that like to make and fly kites and are looking forward to sharing their passion with museum visitors. To them, “go fly a kite” is a good thing.
This event coincides with the exhibition of The Avro Arrow: A Dream Denied, a travelling exhibit from the West Parry Sound Museum tracing the remarkable story of the rise and fall of two of Canada’s greatest technological achievements: The Avro Arrow and Iroquois engine. This exhibit continues at Guelph Civic Museum until July 28th.
Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street, Guelph. For Fourth Fridays, Museum hours are extended from 5:00 to 9:00 and admission is free.
