The sky gets colorful over Haulover Beach Park this weekend during the annual Kite Festival on Feb. 16-18 from noon to 5 p.m. when kites of all colors, shapes and sizes soar high above gracefully dotting the sky.
Kids can take kite-building classes, attend kite-flying demonstrations and take all kinds of classes. Monster kites featuring the 100-foot squid and the 30-foot squid man are expected to make appearances again this year. There are also all types of kite competitions, and anyone can enter with either a kite brought from home, one made on site or on purchased at the site.
Aside from musical entertainment, here will also be food for purchase from a variety of food trucks. Admission is free but parking is $7. Early arrival is strongly recommended.
The park is located at 10800 Collins Ave. The event is sponsored by Skyward Kites. Call 305-893-0906 for more info.
