Soaring: Kite Fest Takes Flight Over Austin

Hundreds of kites of all shapes, sizes and colors filled the skies over Zilker Park during the 95th ABC Kite Fest in Austin on April 1, 2023. Austinites of all ages sprinted across Zilker’s lawn trying to get their kites airborne as part of the event that has been around since 1929. Started by the Exchange Club of Austin, a local service organization, the festival began as a kite competition and this year featured a children’s concert, food vendors and a variety of family-friendly activities. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Moss Pieratt Foundation and Communities in Schools of Central Texas.
