COLUMBIA— The sky above Cosmo-Bethel Park will be filled with kites from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday as part of One Sky-One World Day.

Other cities will host similar events on the same day, and it has been held in Columbia for several years. It is free, open to all ages and sponsored by the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.

According to One Sky-One World's website, the annual events "promote protection of the planet, peace, friendship and understanding between all people."

The attendance of Columbia's event depends on the weather. But Tammy Miller, public information officer of the Parks and Recreation department, said up to 100 people could be expected.

The park is located at 4500 Bethel St. 

To find out more information, please call Parks and Recreation at 874-7460.
