UPDATE – The 66th Annual Ocean Beach Kiwanis Kite Festival and Craft Fair has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 10th! Please update your calendars!
This free family event is the oldest children’s kite festival in the United States, now celebrating its 66th year. This is a third-generation event; people who attended as children are now bringing their children and grandchildren.
NEW Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014
Location: Dusty Rhodes Park, Sunset Cliffs Blvd. at Nimitz
Hours: 10 am to 4 pm
Free kite making and instruction for all children. Prizes for best decorated kites, by age category. Spectacular kite flying demonstrations throughout the day. Carnival rides and a craft fair are also part of the event. Youngsters are taught how to make kites; all materials are supplied. Any handmade kite can be submitted, not just kites made at the Festival.
Entertainment and lunch are provided. Adding to the fun, families can go on carnival rides or browse for unique handicrafts at the craft fair.
The Kite Festival is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Ocean Beach and the Ocean Beach Recreation Center – and we hope to see you there! Be sure to RSVP on the FaceBook Event Page and check it for updates.
