From Staff Reports

The inaugural Danny Wilson Allstate Kite Day is set for Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

at the pavilion at Frontier Park, on the northwest edge of Prosper. Danny Wilson is the primary Allstate Agent serving Prosper and is a sitting member of the Prosper Town Council.

"We encourage everyone to bring their favorite kite to the park and fly it as high as possible. For those kids four and over who may not have one, we’ll provide kites free of charge while our supplies last," said Wilson. Allstate has provided 350 free kites.

The purpose of the Danny Wilson Allstate Kite Day is to provide another opportunity for Prosper families to

enjoy each other’s company, take advantage of the mild weather prior to summer’s hot days, and take time to explore Frontier Park, the Town’s signature public space.

A number of sponsors will also be on hand to pass out their material, answer questions regarding their product or service and provide various door prizes throughout the day.

Sponsors include Allstate Insurance, PAC Fitness, Superscapes Landscape and Lawn Services, Richardson Bike

Mart, Go Go Green Roofing and Restoration and Prosperity Place.

In addition, the local SPCA will have adoptable pets on hand and the Friends of the Prosper Library will be

accepting donations to assist the Prosper Community Library.

Special musical guest is Rhea Raj, a local recording artist who will perform songs from her upcoming album and will also perform current pop hits. More information on Raj is available on her web site

Food vendors will be in attendance, selling snacks, foods and drinks throughout the event.

"We’re planning on making this an annual event, so we hope we get a great crowd in our inaugural event, and begin building from there," said Wilson
