The 28th annual Santa Barbara Kite Festival will take flight 11am-4pm, Sunday, April 14th, 2013. The festival will be held in the “Great Meadow” on the west campus of Santa Barbara City College. The blufftop lawn overlooks the beautiful Santa Barbara harbor and breakwater and is a perfect location for kite flying. Parking is plentiful on campus and admission to the festival is free.
The Santa Barbara Kite Festival is always a fun-filled family-style affair featuring kites of all sizes, shapes and colors. Flyers of all abilities are welcome.
Competitions range from “kite fighting” and “sport flying” for skilled flyers to the more accessible categories such as “most beautiful”, “highest flying”, and “largest kites”. One of the most popular events held throughout the day is the “tail chase” for children. Children in various age groups try to catch the tail of a kite as it dips and dives through the air. Prizes will be awarded in most categories. Kites will be available for purchase at the festival. For more information, call 805-637-6202 or 805-963-2964.
