Inspired by the book The Kite Runner, Hillsdale High School juniors put on this annual festival/carnival geared toward pre-school and elementary age kids. Activites include kite-making, arts and crafts, food, carnival games, a bouncy house and big kids reading books to little kids to promote literacy.
Funds raised go to support a school for girls in Afghanistan through the non-profit organization Afghans4Tomorrow. This year's festival coincides with the The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and is part of the entire student body's participation in the International Stand-Up Against Poverty Campaign.
