Events include a 50-yard dash for kiddos only. Children from 7 -12 years old can fly on 50 feet of string and race to the finish line while keeping their kites in the air. There’s also a competition for youth and adults. The Highest Angle Kite involves participants releasing 200 feet of string at the designated line. The kite flying at the highest angle wins! Will you be crowned the kite-flying champ?
You can also win the Steadiest Kite, the Strongest Pulling Kite, the Smallest Kite, the Most Unusual Kite, the Largest Kite and the Oldest and Youngest Kite Fliers. There will plenty to eat at booths attended by local eateries. Grab a scoop of ice cream or a juicy burger – there’s something for every palate. It will be the biggest picnic in Austin!
