50.11 Kite Making Workshop

February 19, 2011

Longtime Austinites know that one of the coolest weekends of the year is coming up – the Zilker Park Kite Festival!!! But to have fun, you need to own a kite.

You can buy one, or just find one in your garage, but the most creative way is to make one! At this workshop, they’ll have everything you need to build an awesome kite and plenty of people to help. The kites you get to make are called sled kites. They’re made out of a plastic sheet, bamboo sticks and crepe paper. These kites can be entered into the kite contest on March 6th (remember that manufactured kites cannot compete in the contest!)

Mark your calendars, because the festival is coming up in two weeks on Sunday, March 6th. Yes, of course there will be another photo contest this year, so be ready! Kite pictures rule!!

Follow the Zilker Park Kite Festival on facebook for updates, kite tips and more leading up to big weekend:
