The coronavirus outbreak this year has forced nonprofits to become creative with remote or socially distant events and Whittier Birthplace has risen to the challenge with a Kite Flying Day later this month.

Whittier Birthplace, partnering with Kites Over New England, plans a free, socially-distant Kite Flying Day Saturday, Oct. 24 with a rain date of Oct. 25, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at 305 Whittier Road in Haverhill. The Birthplace, which honors Haverhill-born poet John Greenleaf Whittier, asks visitors of all ages to bring their own kites, make a kite or watch the display. Sessions run from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 12:20-2 p.m.

It’s is a free event, but registration is required because space is limited. For more information, email Executive Director Kaleigh Pare at [email protected].
