In recognition of the United Nations General Assembly and International Peace Day, visitors are invited to design and fly kites selecting stripes, colors, and symbols that represent personal ideas about peace and freedom. Visitors of all ages will discover the fun of constructing and flying their very own kite, guaranteed to soar in the lightest of winds. Kite-making workshops are free and suitable for all ages.
On Saturday, join us for a special kite-flying demonstration featuring kites of all shapes and sizes by American kiteflier and educator Archie Stewart. Archie will fly a variety of different sport kites with multiple control lines and will be available to assist and educate visitors on how to safely fly kites.
