Something in the Wind, a free kite flying event, will take place at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park on Saturday and Sunday. The non-profit Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch is also hosting its annual rummage sale, Scatter's Attic, at the park. Both activities are free to attend.

Something in the Wind features expert kite flyer Cameron Kauffman of CoolKiter.com. Kauffman will demonstrate several models of large and unusual kites, as well as answer questions. The public is also welcome to bring kites to fly, at any time during the day.

Inexpensive, quick-assembly kite kits will be available for purchase, as will some pre-made kites, while supplies last. Unlike previous years, free kites and assistance with kite-making will not be available.

Something in the Wind is sponsored by Douglas County, Carson Valley Accounting, Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce, Dr. James the Dentist, Edward Jones Investments - Tim Cleveland, Horse Tales, D&B Cabinets, Holiday Inn Express - Minden, Hone Company, Jacobs Family Berry Farm, Mangia Tutto, The Pink House and Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation.

The full 2021 Dangberg Summer Festival event schedule will be announced at Dangberg.org on May 15.

Proceeds from Scatter's Attic, a rummage sale of donated household goods, helps the non-profit Friends of Dangberg with operations and development at the park.

The sale takes place on the park's east lawn, with a range of collectibles, antiques, and unused and gently used household items. Entrance is free, with purchases by cash, check or credit card.

The sale is organized by the non-profit Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch and will be open both days from 8 a.m. through 2 p.m. The park is located at 1450 Hwy 88, ¾-mile south of the Carson Valley Swim Center.
