Blossom Kite Festival to take place on March 28

It's finally here! The time of year for the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The festival officially started yesterday and it snowed here in the DC area.

While I haven't been downtown since late January, with the unseasonably cold weather and snow we've had in recent weeks, the blooms are probably not very far along. Local news channels appear to confirm the absence of blossoms. However, the festivities go on despite the lack of blossoms with lots of things to do.

On March 28, 2015 the annual Blossom Kite Festival is planned. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to attend and/or participate. While the National Cherry Blossom Festival has been running for years, this is the 5th year for the kite festival. 

Throughout the day they'll be kite making, competitions, displays, challenges, battles and awards. For a more complete list of the day's kite events, please see the full schedule.

I've never participated but have wandered in to watch. It looks like a great time. Hopefully, next weekend's weather will be more aligned with spring as it is this weekend with beautiful kite-flying weather.
