Niagara Windriders Kitefliers Association
The Niagara Windriders Kitefliers Association was founded in 1992. The NWKA is dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of kite flying as an artistic and sporting activity for people of all ages. In addition, our club works to generate an understanding of the use of kites throughout history and in many cultures, their use as scientific instruments, and their application as artistic expression in the sky.
The Niagara Windriders Kitefliers Association serves the geographic area of the Niagara Peninsula of Southern Ontario, Canada; an area of approximately 2500 square kilometres. Through our association with other clubs in Ontario, across Canada and in the United States, we share information on kite building and kite flying skills.
The club's main flying field is located at Lakeview Park on the north shore of Lake Erie. A detailed map showing how to get to Port Colborne along with text directions to the Park will help you to find our flying field.
We extend our appreciation to the City of Port Colborne Parks Department for permission to fly at Lakeview Park (annual permit).
The regular monthly club flying events are held on the last Sunday of each month, April through October. Consult the section on "Events" for more details on the regular club flying dates as well as special festivals and flying dates of other clubs .
