Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Zilker Park Kite Festival - Austin TX - 2012

Zilker Park Kite Festival - Austin TX - 2012

The Zilker Park Kite Festival is an annual event, the longest consecutive running Kite Festival in the country, 2012 was its 84th year!  We had a lot of fun.  We didn't actually fly a kite, as I think the kids are still too young for that chaos, but I'm thinking we might next year. Landon wouldn't stand still long enough to be able to fly a kite even if we tried. He was running all over the place having a blast!

The Zilker Park Kite Festival is not just about flying kites with a large group of people and seeing if you can stay untangled with your neighbor. It's also about people watching and just being outdoors with your friends and family and eating a lot of fried foods, like the State Fair of Texas! This was a HUGE corndog!
