Hosted by Miami-Dade Parks and Skyward Kites, these free events feature paper kite building classes & demonstrations from longtime kite enthusiasts. In addition, there will be kite-flying competitions for both children and adults.People of all ages are encouraged to come out to fly their kites, make their own kites for free or purchase an already-made kite. 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 live music. Food and refreshments & kites will be available for purchase.
