Three of us started participating in the Cherry Blossom Kite Festival from 2011 and also began organizing a get together for friends to fly Indian & Pakistani Kites.
This activity has evolved into a regular fixture twice a year. Once in late March (at Cherry Blossom Kite Festival the last Saturday of March) and one on 1st or 2nd weekend of May (in Baltimore at Gun Powder Park).
We are excited to have our 10th Annual 2020 event on July 4th, Saturday at 12 Noon (Tentative).This could change and be moved later on due to Coronavirus.
