NRG and Kites!
The 2013 Trinity River Wind Festival Presented by NRG brought out an amazing variety of show kites from Texas and Louisiana. The annual event is sponsored by NRG, the parent company of Reliant and Green Mountain Energy. They were on hand to give away fantastic free kites and to demonstrate their wide range of home energy services and products
Kroger returned to sponsor the Kids Fun Zone, Sprint returned as the electronic sponsor with games and gifts. Dallas Zoo Outreach wowed the children with neat critters, even a porcupine!
Over 4,000 people enjoyed the day’s activities. New attractions for this year were the Larry g(EE) Band fresh from New York and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Club Wood, and the Sendai Kite Makers from one of Dallas’ sister cities, Sendai, Japan. In 2011, Sendai was devastated by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake and ferocious tsunami; the country is still recovering from the disaster.
