blossom kite festival

• 17 comments •


Formerly known as 'The Smithsonian Kite Festival, The Blossom Kite Festival is held annually on the National Mall. We didn't know about it in advance so it was a pleasant surprise to stumble onto the festivities en route to the Lincoln Memorial. I'll take any excuse to listen to songs from Mary Poppins (they had this on repeat). - Mina

  5. I visited DC the week after you were there (it seems) and heard from a friend about how I had just missed the Kite Festival. I was so disappointed because it sounded just fantastic. I'm glad I got to see such stunning photos from it!

  12. It's been awhile since I've seen a kite flying. And that's odd, since our summer's closing already. Hmm. Perhaps it was too hot out.

  13. that's so funny because i attended a kite festival around the same time & i had the exact same thought about mary poppins too. i actually sang the song "let's go fly a kite" out loud while i was there.

  16. Gorgeous. I missed the blossoms this year in DC since I was out of the country. It is my favorite time of the year in the city.
