Get ready for a high-flying weekend of colorful fun at the New Smyrna Beach Kite Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 7, and Sunday, June 8.
On the beach just south of Flagler Avenue, this event is sure to provide real "fun-in-the-sun" for the whole family.
Festival highlights include scores of tethered kites, some as large as a vehicle; kite demonstrations and competitions hosted by kite clubs from throughout Florida, and free lessons for first-timers.
The kids' zone at the festival offers free kites to the first 400 children each festival day and a decorating station to personalize each kite. Adults and children are also encouraged to bring their own kites.
Admission is free, but registration (on a walk-up basis, the day of the event) is required.
