Though a few expert adult kite flyers showed off their skills at Park Ridge Park District’s Kite Fest Saturday, some of the most enthusiastic participants proved to be younger children. Huma Eroglu, 3, and Teagan Carlin, 4, both of Park Ridge, attended with their families and ran, keeping their kites aloft, despite the heat. The fest was held at Hinkley Park.
