FAIRFIELD — The 6th Annual Lynch Canyon Kite Festival drew a small but enthusiastic group of people on Saturday.

Families brought blankets, red wagons filled with children and kites of all shapes and sizes to the Lynch Canyon Open Space Park.

For some people, this was their first time coming to the event.

“I have always wanted to come, but I didn’t because of work. This is the first time I can do this,” said Alaira Ayala of Suisun City.

Her son, Anthony Colden Jr., and her husband watched with wide smiles as their kite took off into the blue sky.

“This is so fun,” Anthony said.

The Solano Land Trust has put the Kite Festival on for the past six years for families to come and enjoy the park. According to the Solano Land Trust website, its mission is to permanently protect natural areas, working farms and ranch lands in Solano County. It has permanently protected 22,161 acres of natural areas and agricultural lands.

“This is the first year we have been able to come out here. We have always been out-of-town,” said Nicole Byrd, executive director of Solano Land Trust.

“I’m excited about this, we get people out of the house and into the fresh air. It’s a great place to bring the family and enjoy the outdoors,” she said.

The Solano Land Trust has activities throughout the year. The 7th Annual Lynch Canyon Trail Run is scheduled for June 7. The Trust calls it the toughest trail run in Solano County.

To register for the event, go to www.active.com. For more information on upcoming events or the Solano County Land Trust, go to solanolandtrust.org or call 432-0150.
