Design, build and fly your own work at the kite workshop! The Vore Buffalo Jump partnered with the Tri State Museum in Belle Fourche for the kite workshop this year. The class was taught by Sky Wind World which promotes art kiting with kite workshops and flying over buffalo jumps.
The Making was done at the TriState Museum, The Flying was done at the Vore Buffalo Jump on Sunday July 12. Best wind we have had in many years. What a fun event.
