Staff Report

 

The Los Alamos Arts Council’s Kite Festival officially turned 20 Friday at Overlook Park in White Rock. The festival began at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series. The festival continued today and runs noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at the park.

The festival’s popular kite building workshops are noon-2 p.m. in which children assemble their own kites and then decorate them. There also is a stack of pre-made kites that just need to be personalized.

Other mainstays include the kite doctors who patch up or repair any damaged kites and a number of vendors that have food available for purchase including roasted corn, Navajo tacos and fry bread.
