Every year the City of Austin does a kite festival and it is a full on festival. Thousands of kites, thousands of people, and just enough wind to make it the perfect afternoon. We are lucky enough to walk to it from where we live. I didnt know much about it but we thought we would check it out. It is a HUGE event here and done annually. So, if anyone wants to check out an awesom kite festival, come to Austin the first weekend in March!
