The Kite Festival returns to the US capital of Washington DC with its colourful array of kites of all shapes and sizes. Running since way back in 1967, the kites have certainly changed but the festival retains its original charm. Certainly one of the world's greatest kite competitions, kite flyers from across the US and indeed the world gather in the nation's capital to show off their skills. As an even greater treat for visitors, the Kite Festival coincides with the beginning of cherry blossom time in Washington DC, making it a true feast for the eyes! So whether it's the handmade kite competition that attracts you or the Hot Tricks Showdown or the Rokkaku Kite Challenge for Teams that takes your fancy, you're sure to have a blast at the Smithsonian Kite Festival this year!
