Summer To-Do’s: Berkeley Kite Festival This Weekend

Posted By April Isabel Angeles On Jul 21, 2008 @ 10:52 pm In The Specials | Comments Disabled

Some of you may have attended the annual Berkeley Kite Festival & West Coast Kite Championships [1] in the past, but when we first heard of it, we didn’t know what to expect. Fighter kites? Kite races? Aerial beauty contests?

We did a bit of digging, and it turns out that we weren’t too far off-base. But the kite festival also has so much more to offer. We’re looking forward to the attempts at new world records, the giant creature kite show and the candy drop (i.e. air-bombing a sea of kids with sweet treats). They also promise [2] free admission, free activities and not-so-free food. Oh well, can’t win ‘em all.

Parking won’t be free, either, so we suggest that you take the AC Transit #9 bus line to Berkeley Marina [3]. Also remember to bring both a jacket and sunscreen [4]–Bay Area weather on a hilltop by the bay will undoubtedly call for both extremes. Now go fly a kite!

What: 22nd Annual Berkeley Kite Festival & West Coast Kite Championships
When: Saturday, July 26 & Sunday, July 27 @ 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Where: Cesar E. Chavez Park at the Berkeley Marina
