A lovely day in the park packed with as much color — and as many kites — as possible.
That’s the goal behind ‘The Big Baltimore Kite Fest,” a new community festival slated for March 30 in Patterson Park. Created in a partnership between Baltimore’s Creative Alliance and Friends of Patterson Park, the event seeks to bring together the city’s myriad cultures through a visual kite display.
“We want it to feel sweet and beautiful,” said Heather Keating, a spokeswoman for Creative Alliance. “We’re excited to add this element to Baltimore.”
Keating said Baltimore’s kite festival will feature a make-your-own-kite station, music, food and other family-friendly activities that will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The event will also host a “Will it Fly?” competition for participants to craft non-traditional kites.
The free festival runs from noon to 4 p.m. Guests are welcome to pack picnic blankets.
