Miami Beach, Florida, USA
Colorful kites of all shapes and sizes will fill the skies over Haulover Park, on Sunday, February 17, 2013, from 12-5 p.m., for the park’s 20th annual “Kite Day,” presented by the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department and Skyward Kites. This year’s event will spotlight “Kites of the Caribbean”—an exhibit by local kite makers representing the styles and traditions of Caribbean kite flyers from such countries as Cuba, Haiti and Trinidad. Visitors will see a returning display of colossal kites, including a 150-foot rainbow, a 100-foot squid, a 30-foot scuba man and a 30-foot “Nemo” fish. The family-style event will also feature FREE kite competitions and kite-building classes for all ages, as well as music, food and refreshments available for purchase.
Event-goers are encouraged to come out to fly their kites, attend a kite-making class and make their own paper kites for free. Kites will also, be available for purchase, starting at $5. Kite competitions will include prizes for the best homemade kites, highest flying kites, prettiest kites, and kites with the longest tails. Those who may just want to sit and watch the festivities may bring a blanket. Shoes with socks are recommended for running around on the grassy field.
