20th annual Eureka Springs Kite Festival at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. Get in on the kite flying action from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or just go and watch. You’ll see all shapes, sizes and colors adding a little bling to the sky. In addition to the kites, you can see the Big Cats at the refuge. For details about the festival, phone KaleidoKites, a cool kite shop in downtown Eureka, at 479-253-6596 or 888-836-6251.
