National Kite Month: Celebrations & Memories


I don’t know about you, but I love driving down Beach Boulevard during National Kite Month. Seeing the different shapes and colors dance in the clear blue sky is mesmerizing.

My favorite way to celebrate is by spending a day at the beach with my family. We pack up our kites, beach chairs, coolers, blankets, snacks, and head to the beach. I love watching my daughter’s face light up with excitement, as the wind takes her kite away up into the sky. It’s a wonderful thing to see.

Then I hear Mr. Banks in my ear singing that famous song, “Let’s Go Fly A Kite” and I realize I am experiencing pure joy.
