The cherry blossom kite festival is something that everyone should go see if you haven't already. It is such a blast to see all the different kites fill the skies about the Washington Monument. So bring your favorite kite, or just come watch, either is perfectly fine, and be sure to be amazed. We are going to also be having a picnic on the mall so if you want to eat please bring a light lunch. About the Event:

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is kicking off kite season. The eighth annual Blossom Kite Festival showcases the creativity of kite makers and skill of fliers from across the US and other countries through a variety of competitions and demonstrations, Rokkaku Battles and the Hot Tricks Showdown. Bring your own kites or children can make a kite at an activity station (while supplies last) to fly on the Public Field. Kites will also be available for purchase onsite.
