Go fly a kite

Monday, March 14, 2022 by Tai Moses

You know it’s spring when thousands of kites take to the skies above Austin. The ABC Kite Fest is returning this year to Zilker Park. Now in its 93rd year, ABC is the longest-running festival of its kind. In addition to the traditional kite contest and showcase, where you can watch expert flyers performing with professional-grade kites, the festival offers a pet zone for dogs to play in, a children’s music concert, a food court and lots of other fun stuff. Anyone can join the contest, which is judged by KXAN weatherman Jim Spencer, and handmade or store-bought kites are welcome. Sunday, April 3, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
