Looking back at your childhood, what memories come to mind? Having family picnics at the park? Running through an open field with your friends? Gazing at the sky making shapes out of the clouds? How about attending the Los Alamos Kite Festival?
For the 16th year, the Los Alamos Arts Council presents the Los Alamos Kite Festival on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the soccer fields in Overlook Park in White Rock. Children of all ages are welcome. Whether you build a kite, fly a kite, enjoy a picnic with family and friends, or just take in the artful scene, this is community tradition not to be missed.
Thanks to the generous funding from Los Alamos National Bank, the Kite Festival will continue to be a free event.
The Kite Festival weekend kicks off 7 p.m., Friday with the Summer Concert Series. Kite artists will be on the field with their kites on display and a night kite fly demonstration. In this event, small lights are attached to the kites before they are launched into the night sky. It is an amazing light show over White Rock.
The main festival is held from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The day includes music, food, kite-building workshops for kids, and a lot of kite flying.
