Go fly a kite at John Hunt Park as city, AshaKiran Foundation host event

HUNTSVILLE – With a theme of “Soaring for Social Justice,” the 12th annual Community Kite Festival sets sail just after the meteorological spring, which begins on the first day of March followed by the start of the real season with the equinox a few weeks later, arrives.

The City of Huntsville and AshaKiran Foundation are hosting the March 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at John Hunt Park.

In addition to kite flying, there will be food trucks, children’s activities and more at the festival that celebrates inclusiveness, diversity, equity and harmony in the community.

You can bring your own kite or purchase one at the event. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs to enjoy the festivities at the park in comfort.

“This is a tremendous event for the entire family,” said Kenny Anderson, director of the City’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. “This is an opportunity to celebrate diversity within our community while having some fun.”

The open spaces of the festival site at John Hunt Park, across from the Jaycees building, make it the ideal setting for kite-flying.

“John Hunt Park is a wonderful asset for Huntsville, and we are always excited to hold events like this that bring people together,” said James Gossett, director of the city’s Parks & Recreation Department.
