National Kite Month – Let’s Celebrate!!!
What is National Kite Month?
Every year in April Kite enthusiasts across North America celebrate the history and the future of the world’s favorite pastime by letting their kites fly. It is a month to celebrate the joy and happiness that comes from letting out the line, letting your kite catch the wind, and letting that kite soar high into the sky.
April was chosen as National Kite Month because it was the month that perfectly sympolized hope, potential, and joy. As the first month in Spring, it is when most kite fliers are starting to bring their kites out of the closet and prepare for a summer on the beach. It is the month that while we spring clean and dust off the cobwebs, we can look fondly back on the memories of the year before while looking towards a bright future. April is also the month that we see the last of the snow giving way to green lawns, a month that we are eager to get outside and be active. So why not do it with a kite this year?
Who Runs National Kite Month?
NKM is jointly organized by the American Kitefliers Association (AKA) and the Kite Trade Association International (KTAI). Volunteers from both organizations work together to help promote kite flying throughout the year and during NKM
