I will most likely drive to the event fron San Francisco. If I do I can take several people in my SUV. I just ask that each person chip in for gas and toll. I've been to this event a couple of times, but I haven't gone in a couple of years. It's great to be in the sun, make your own little kite, check out the unique kites people bring, and do so much more. Bring cash, a kite if you have one, a blanket or towel to sit on, any food or drinks you like, and sunscreen. If you have any questions please post them here or text/call me at[masked]-5318.
