This week, if someone tells you to “go fly a kite” don’t be offended. It’s probably an invitation to the 86th annual Zilker Kite Festival. This Sunday, March 2nd, thousands of Austinites will make their way to Zilker Park’s great lawn for the family-friendly event.
The Zilker Kite Festival, always held on the first Sunday of March, is the longest continuously running kite festival in the United States. For many, the festival is a tradition and marks the start of spring in Austin. It’s free and fun for all ages.
