March 27th, 2011 - Field Trip : The Cherry Blossom Kite Festival
After 44 years of Smithsonian sponsorship, the annual Washington, D.C. kite festival will now be produced by the National Cherry Blossom Festival.  The Kite Festival will be held on Sunday, March 27, 2011, on the grounds of the Washington Monument. 
The festival includes showcase flight demonstrations by Master Kite-makers from across the country.  Multi-line kite flyers compete against each other, showing off their best flying tricks.  Competitors fight to be the sole kite left in the sky. 
Start early if you want to capture images from the National Mall.  Plan to carpool from the parking lot at Vienna Metro Station (East bound side of I-66) at 6:00 am.   
If this is too early for you, we will see you at the Kite Festival which is from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  
Location:  Washington Monument grounds - Constitution Avenue & 17th Street, NW
