Last Sunday, we spent the afternoon in a huge park overlooking downtown Austin for the annual Kite festival. It is something the city does every year to get its city’s residence outside and enjoying the pre-spring air. Being in central Texas, it gets hot and humid fast so the need to celebrate spring in early March is a necessity.
In the very short time I was at the festival (three hours), I got to see that all kinds of people enjoy this festival. It really shows a great example of what a community festival is suppose to do; Parts of the entire community at one event to display all the faces that make up that city enjoying the time together. It was really wonderful to take part in, even if I didn’t have a kite.
And if you still haven’t seen the video where I almost die from the kite….. Here you are.
