NATIONAL CHERRY BLOSSOM KITE FESTIVAL
"Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!"
- Marry Poppins
Now that spring is sprung, what better time to channel your inner child and go fly a kite? Come join thousands of other kite flyers on the National Mall for D.C's annual Kite Festival! With kite acrobatic demonstrations, rokkaku battles, and hundreds of kites of all shapes and sizes, there's something for everyone to love.
Feel free to bring your own kite or borrow from a friend. They will have some kites for sale (or you can make your own at a tent), but it's probably cheaper to pick one up ahead of time. If you're bringing a kite (or multiple kites), please say so in the comments.
After the festivities wrap up at 4:30 pm, we can go grab drinks/food downtown.
-- MEETUP INFORMATION --
LOCATION: We will meet as close to the base of the Washington Monument as we can. We will be on the side that faces the White House. It will be crowded, so if you don't see anybody you recognize, please call me on my cellphone and/or wave your hand around like a crazy person shouting "The Narwhal Bacons at Midnight!!!". We'll find you.
TRANSPORTATION: I highly recommend taking the Metro. The closest stops will either be Metro Center, Smithsonian, or practically anything else near either the White House or the National Mall.
CONTACT: My cellphone number is (301) 758-1144. Please text or call me if you can't find us. If I don't pick up, it's because I didn't hear the phone, but I will be checking it frequently around the meetup start time.
