Remember when it was an eternity from birthday to birthday? When your mom could send you to the corner store with a quarter to pick up a loaf of bread and you had money left over to buy a piece of candy? When you could lie on your back for hours, holding on to a string, gazing at your kite floating overhead, just daydreaming? Well, time continues to accelerate and inflation continues to make that quarter worth less and less, but the good news is that you can still spend the day gazing at kites floating overhead.
The Los Alamos Arts Council presents the 11th annual Los Alamos Kite Festival this weekend at the Spirio soccer fields in White Rock. Thanks to the funding by Los Alamos National Bank, admission to the Kite Festival is free.
The festival weekend kicks off at the soccer fields Friday with a Los Alamos County Summer Concert, the South Austin Jug Band. During this time, a night kite-fly demonstration will take place. In this event, small lights are attached to kites before they are launched into the night sky. It is an amazing light show over White Rock.
The main festival will be held from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and includes music, food, kite-building workshops for kids and lots of kite flying.
