Spring 2017 RPTS Spotlight

Congratulations to Mr. Steven Migacz and his RPTS 321 class for the successful planning and implementation of Kite Fest! Kite Fest is an event hosted by students in Texas A&M’s RPTS 321 event management course. During the semester, the students are responsible for planning, marketing, organizing, securing vendors and sponsors, and implementing the event. For this event, community members were invited to participate in an afternoon of kite flying and fun activities such as the three-legged race, a sack race, a water balloon toss, a donut eating contest, face painting, and more.  This year’s event was a huge success! Thousands of members of the community turned out for the third annual kite fest, which took place on April 30 at Wolf Pen Creek Park. The event was featured on KBTX and The Eagle, and was supported by vendors such as Fungineering, Bricks4Kids, CooknGrow, and more. The students provided kite-making kits, displayed students’ artwork from local schools, provided prizes, and demonstrated their event management skills through the successful planning, organization, and implementation of this community-wide event!
