We especially encourage our guests to make their kites in their traditional styles from countries they may want to represent. In years past we have had a traditional kites from the Bahamas, China, Colombia, Jamaica, Trinidad, Peru, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and many more. It is a fantastic way to celebrate the unique diversity of cultures that South Florida has.
People of all ages are encouraged to come out to fly their kites. There is no limitation to the size and type of kite. Those who just want to watch can bring a blanket and enjoy the sight of hundreds of kites in the air and some great music. Food and refreshments & kites will be available for purchase.
