That One Day At… Houston Kite Festival

I’d never flown kites before. Somehow that classic childhood activity missed me (as far as memory serves). I still haven’t, but at least I got to watch MaiTai fly one with The Designated Dad this weekend.

Description: Via event pages – “Everyone is invited to this free festival as kites in all shapes and sizes set sail in the spring sky… There will be costumed characters, various stage performances, face painting, bubbles, professional kite exhibitions, hula hoops, parachute races, an interactive DJ, a variety of food trucks and several other activities including train rides, pedal boats and motorized sail boats in the Jones Reflection Pool.

Location: Miller Hill & Jones Reflection Pool at Hermann Park Conservancy; 6100 Hermann Park Drive Houston, TX 77030

Hours: April 3rd from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Fee: Free

Food: Food trucks galore (with impressively long lines). The park’s cafe is also open. Or feel free to enjoy a picnic under a tree on the lawn.

Bathrooms: You can locate Miller Outdoor Theatre’s restrooms and Port-o-potties on the map.

Contact Them: Email mcampbell@hermannpark.org with questions.

Other: Bring extra cash for food and extra things you may have forgotten, like a kite or sunscreen. Leave extra early because parking is a nightmare. Either bring $20 to park at the Natural Science Museum across the street, or plan for alternative transport (Uber, MetroRail, bike…). The event is pet-friendly.
