For 29th Year, Kites to Fly for Peace for the

One Sky One World International Kite Fly for Peace was inspired by Jane Parker-Ambrose, a Colorado native and Denver kite-maker who, in 1985, during a trip to the Soviet Union, presented an original "Peace Comet" kite to the Soviet Woman's Peace Committee in Moscow.  This people-to-people gesture has inspired hundreds of thousands of people in more than 40 countries to participate every 2nd Sunday of every October.   
Also known as World Kite Day, people around the world fly kites for peace and the environment.  The 29th Annual OSOW will take place tomorrow, Sunday, October 12 at Sloan's Lake Park at the  corner of 18th Avenue and Meade Street, from Noon to 4 p.m. 
There will be a kite making workshop, instruction on how to fly a kite including proper launching technique and retrieving line without tangling.  Open free kite flying will take place on the east side of  Sloan's Lake Park just across from 18th and Meade Street.   For more information about One Sky One World in Denver and 2013 locations please visit  , email or call 720-490-1991.
