What was it like seeing movies before Alamo Drafthouse? What did we do before quote-alongs and sing-alongs? How did we sit through an entire movie without a bucket of beer and queso? I honestly can’t remember.

After getting rained out last year, the mother of all kite festivals has finally arrived! The Zilker Kite Festival is the oldest in the nation, and one of the most anticipated events in Austin each year. It’s an amazing day in the sunshine that everyone in the family will enjoy.

Fly a kite just for fun, or get in on the competition. There are a bunch of free contests, including 
Highest Angle Kite, 
Steadiest Kite
, Strongest Pulling Kite
, Smallest Kite, 
Most Unusual Kite,

It truly is such a fun day at Zilker. On top of more kites than you can imagine, there will also be a ton of good food. Plenty of your favorite vendors will be out there with your favorite treats.

Warning: Parking is a major issue! This festival always draws a crowd, so plan to ride your bike or take one of the shuttles.

Let’s hope for a breezy day with clear skies!
