The weather was perfect today for the Zilker Kite Festival. It’s really incredible to see hundreds of kites flying overhead as you walk around. Homemade kites, children’s kites, giant kites, colorful kites. Kites shaped like cats, boats, dragons, snakes.
We arrived late in the afternoon, so we missed most of the contest portion of the event except for the “largest kite” category. If you ever thought flying a kite was easy, try one which requires more than one people holding the rope, with their heels dug into the ground just to keep from being lifted into the air.
