Atlanta World Kite Festival
The 5th Annual Atlanta World Kite Festival and Expo will continue the tradition of festivals and family by celebrating our communities, healthy families, and kite flying. Last year there were contests, local entertainment, food, arts and crafts, city leaders, local nonprofits, community organizations, and kite demonstrations. This year there are live performances, kite making and pumpkin decorating contests, spoken word, kids’ authors, STEAM (science, technology, arts, math). Free.
The festival was built on the premise of “cultural awareness and community building.” Along with Mr. Rowell, a group of his family and friends decided to make a unique and positive contribution to their city by bringing our communities together.
