Volunteer at Special Events
There are so many opportunities to help the neighborhood every year! Consider volunteering at one of our annual events. You’ll have fun, meet people, and contribute to the success of the community.
Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival
Saturday, January 18, 2014, Noon-4 p.m.
Kites of all shapes, sizes, colors and themes will fly over frozen Lake Harriet. And there’s more fun to be had on the ice – and even underneath it. Other fun family activities at the festival include ice fishing, horse-drawn wagon rides, snowshoeing, a children’s medallion hunt and a marshmallow roast.
LHiNC will join other KiteFest partners to contribute to the day’s overall success. Find us serving hot cocoa under a tent by the bandshell, and helping kids roast marshmallows around the bonfire. LHiNC also runs the Zero Waste program at KiteFest. To help us in any of these capacities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Linden Hills Festival
