TWO RIVERS--Labor Day weekend is a chance for families to get outside and go fly a kite.
Thousands of people did just that in Two Rivers Saturday, as part of the 8th Annual Kites Over Lake Michigan.
The event kicked-off Saturday morning on the Lakeshore, with a breeze blowing off Lake Michigan.
Neshotah Beach is where the event is held and it's one of the largest kite festivals in the Midwest.
There are kites in all different shapes, sizes and colors flying in the air.
The event attracts kite-fliers and families from all over.
But organizers say the event is also great for the local economy.
"From hotels to eating establishments, to you know -- gas stations, you know just anybody who's involved with some kind of a business gets a little boost," said Chow Chong with Unique Flying Objects.
The two-day festival continues Sunday.

Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's all of the injuries, but many Packers fans are saying "no thanks," to this weekend's Packers game.
