Frozen Assets & Kites on Mendota

2020 Frozen Assets Kites

Kites on Mendota and Ice Landings on Mendota – ARE ON!

Join us on Saturday, February 6th and Sunday, February 7th for our popular Kites on Mendota! See large show kites fly high above Lake Mendota. Meanwhile, on Saturday, February 6th,  jumpers from the Seven Hills Skydiving Club will make ice landings on a marked location in front of The Edgewater on Lake Mendota. 

Due to safety concerns for large gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Frozen Assets Festival, Fundraiser, 5K run/walk, and evening events. While Clean Lakes Alliance could not hold its usual Frozen Assets Festival & Fundraiser this year, we wanted to do something to highlight the importance of the lakes year-round. Kites on Mendota is a way to give the community something to see on the lakes without asking people to come and gather at a specific point. 


Join us for this outdoor activity that allows people to stay socially distanced!

Every year, the Frozen Assets Festival & Fundraiser raises the profile of our lakes as one of our community’s greatest assets. With over 10,000 attendees in 2020, Frozen Assets raised more than $130,000 for our lakes! Since 2012, Frozen Assets has raised $1,200,000 for lake improvement projects, educational programs, and water quality monitoring.
