Event Navigation

Celebrate the beginning of spring at the 31st annual Family Kite Flite Day at Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center. Family Kite Flite Day will be held from 9 am until 5 pm on Saturday, March 17. This will be a free admission day at the site, although donations are appreciated. It will be a great day for families and folks of all ages.

Each year since 1987, Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center has hosted a day of spring fun and learning. Guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnics, and kites to this free event. Be sure to wear green since it is also St. Patrick’s Day! Demonstrations by kiters from Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas will include stunt kites, parafoils, and other fancy kites. Volunteers will help guests make their own free sled kite. There will also be arts and crafts vendors, a children’s area, bubble making, a sandbox where visitors can dig for treasures, and kite giveaways. The OHS, Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center, and Spiro Mounds Development Association sponsor this event.

Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center is the only prehistoric American Indian site open to the public in Oklahoma. It is located three miles east of Spiro on Highway 9/271 and four miles north on Lock and Dam Road. For more information please contact Dennis Peterson at spiro@okhistory.org or 918-962-2062.
