The 16th Annual
Blue Ridge Kite Festival
The 16th Annual Blue Ridge Kite Festival was another huge success thanks to our sponsors, vendors and community! The overcast day provided good winds for kite flying, and families enjoyed the show courtesy of Richmond Air Force Kite Club. Huge handmade kites of vibrant colors soared above with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the picturesque backdrop. Nearly 50 vendors attended bringing delicious food, arts and crafts, and fun for the kids. 1,000 free Kite Fest t-shirts were distributed to the children in attendance, and the Easter Bunny made his rounds. An estimated 10,000 people came out to enjoy the day.
