Enthusiasts hope for a sunny, breezy Kite Day

Posted on May 6, 2016 at 11:19 am by Clay Curtin

The 28th annual Kite Day is Saturday, May 7, from noon to 3 p.m. at Bedwell Bayfront Park. The event typically attracts a crowd of approximately 500-600 people for kite flying, face painting, snow cones, bounce houses and a hot dog lunch. If the wind is strong enough, the 46-foor “Mega Fish” giant kite might make an appearance. The Menlo Park Kiwanis will help barbecue hotdogs and a number of resource booths will be available. Some of the participating groups include the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, the City's Environmental Programs division, the Belle Haven Branch Library and Menlo Spark. Kite Day is always the first Saturday in May, in conjunction with San Mateo County’s annual Streets Alive! Parks Alive! festivities.
