Best Kite Extravaganza

Zilker Park Kite Festival

It’s a bird, it’s a plane ... no, it’s a giant flying cat ... kite. Just one example of something you might have heard in passing at this year’s 76th annual Zilker Park Kite Festival. Each year, in early March, the air and trees of Zilker fill with kites of all shapes and colors at this fun-filled annual fest. There are workshops for kids of all ages to build their own kites, as well as kite stunts and competitions awarding titles for smallest, largest, and most unusual kite. Brought to you by the Exchange Club of Austin, the event donates all proceeds to charities dedicated to helping local children in crisis. It’s a day sure to make you sing, “Let’s go fly a kite.”
