Flying a kite on the Washington Monument

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s your kite in the sky.

The Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival is starting this week! The DMV area will be bustling with celebrations and ways to enjoy the sweet-smelling blossoms and the turn of the season into spring. The first event following the Opening Ceremony is the Blossom Kite Festival on March 26th and 27th! Flying a kite on the Washington Monument grounds will be a nostalgic return to childhood for adults and a delightful colorful experience for kids. Bring a picnic basket and enjoy the day with friends and family. Kites will also be for sale on the day of the festival with a new 2022 design. If you would rather not go to the National Mall but would still like to participate check out this list of participating parks in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area.
