Have you ever been to South Padre Island when the Kite Fest is going on? If not, then you are missing out on one of the biggest kite festivals in the country! What once started out as just a “fun fly” has now become one of best festivals you can attend especially if you love to fly kites. If you happen to be staying with us in one of our South Padre Island vacation rentals you will be close to where the action is happening for this festival. This is an event that you can’t miss this year with your family!
Let the Fun Begin
Beginning on January 31st at 6:30 pm, you and your family can head over to the South Padre Island Convention Centre for the kick off of the festival. They will be doing some indoor kite performances that will host an array of internationally known kite fliers. One of the people that you will be able to meet is John Barresi who holds more than 30 national championship titles and was the 2018 Open Individual Unlimited Ballet champion. The indoor fliers dedicated their choreographed routines with one passion in mind, “creating peace through kiting worldwide.” If you have never been to an indoor kite performance before you are in for a treat! Tickets for the Indoor Kite Performance is $6 per person and can be purchased in advance only as they will not be available at the door. You can call B & S Kites today to reserve your tickets for this event at 956-761-1248.
Let’s Go Fly a Kite
The kite festival doesn’t end on Thursday night, instead you get a few more days to enjoy it. On Friday and Saturday, the festival will move outdoors from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the flats just north of the Convention Centre. Here you will be able to see many kite fliers from all over the United States bring their beautiful ‘show kites’ that will be on display throughout the day. And of course, no kite festival is complete without seeing the mesmerizing performances of individuals and team performances. Some of the best kite fliers have come to South Padre Island for you and your family to watch their beautiful performances with their beautiful kites. Admission to the event on Friday and Saturday is free for you to enjoy.
What to Bring
Many families who come and enjoy the kite festival like to be prepared to stay all day. We suggest that you bring a cooler, beach chairs, sunscreen, drinks and snacks.
