February 2022: Color the Wind

On Feb. 19, we braved bitterly cold temperatures to attend Clear Lake’s Color the Wind kite festival. This annual festival has been going on for 20 years, but this was our first time to attend the event.

Heading north on I-35, we could see the kites as soon as we took the Clear Lake exit. We drove in the direction of the lake and found a place to park about six blocks away. I’m so glad I had on ice cleats and lots of layers of warm clothing – it was cold and slippery. You can actually walk out on the lake! Man, it was cold out there. Like, a whole lot colder than walking on the sidewalk. But it was sunny, and it was such fun to see the bright, oversized kites, and the kids being pulled on sleds, and just to have that experience. We stayed until our fingers were too frozen to take pictures.
