Along with stunt kite flying, the event includes food, crafts, hands on activities and kites for sale. A “kite hospital” will even be available, staffed with kite medics to mend the inevitable broken and injured kites using sticks, duct tape, and ingenuity.
The Kite Festival takes place at Overlook Park in White Rock, New Mexico just eight miles southwest of Los Alamos. Festival hours are: Friday, May 20 from 7–10 p.m.; and Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 from noon to 5 p.m.
The Kite Festival is presented by the Los Alamos Arts Council. There is no entry fee. For more information, visit https://losalamosartscouncil.org/kite-festival/
