Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Zilker Park Kite Festival - Austin TX - Fun for the Entire Family

Zilker Park Kite Festival - Austin TX - Fun for the Entire Family

Zilker Park Kite Festival in Austin TX was a huge event this weekend.  This was my first time to attend, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I did not know that we were to bring our own kite and fly it with the others. I thought there were a set number of people who were registered for contests who would be flying their kites...

There were hundreds of kites flying around Zilker Park, it was amazing.  There were one-eyed octopus kites, skull and cross-bone kites, Winnie the pooh kites, butterfly kites and lots of ladybug kites... kites of all different shapes and sizes...

Many kites got tangled up and those were fun to watch to see what would happen. Some strings broke and created run-away kites crashing down.

They had other fun activities for the kids like a train tunnel, bounce houses, and face painting.  Alyssa enjoyed sitting on this big rock and just watching everyone go by. She's a people-watcher like me.
