Marathon, Kite Festival in Abilene

Jeff Garretson - April 5, 2016 12:35 pm

Abilene is set to host hundreds of runners this Saturday at the Eisenhower Marathon and 5-Star Festival.

“We’ve added quite a bit of festivities around the marathon,” said Michael Player, Executive Director of the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Player joined in on the KSAL Morning New Tuesday with a look at a number of activities scheduled on April 9th.

Player says in addition to the racing, families will gather to watch a sky filled with kites on the Heritage Center Lawn.

“About 10am we’ve got a kite festival that’s going to go off.”

The day’s events also include a Blues concert featuring American Idol contestant Jessica Paige and the Santiago Brothers Blues Band at 4pm.

Then at 7pm a Neil Diamond Tribute concert.
