When is the Kites on Ice festival in Madison?

What is the name of the kite festival on ice in Madison, Wis., and when will it be held in 2014? I went several years ago and would love to see again. Thank you! - Lisa, Oregon, Wis.

Unfortunately, that festival no longer is held, but it looks as if folks really miss it.

However, just 22 miles east of Madison, there will be kites on ice during the Frosty Frolic festival in Cambridge, Wis. It's Feb. 8 in 2014.

There's always a Cool Fool Kite Festival in Milwaukee on New Year's Day. It's on Lake Michigan off Veterans Park.

And if you're willing to travel a little farther, the Color the Wind kite festival in Clear Lake, Iowa, is the largest winter kite festival in the Midwest. It's Feb. 15 in 2014.

Clear Lake is just off Interstate 35 south of the Minnesota border. For more, see Clear Lake tranquility.
