It’s another longstanding cherry blossom tradition that’s getting adapted for the pandemic: The annual spring kite festival is moving off the National Mall and into D.C. residents’ neighborhood parks.
Dubbed the Blossom Kite Fly for 2021, residents are encouraged to participate in a local park. Look for one with wide-open spaces and few trees or power lines.
You can also check out the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s tutorials on designing and building your own kite — making this a perfect weekend activity for families with kids.
The National Cherry Blossom Festival asks you to tag #BlossomKiteFly and #StepIntoSpring. Plus, tag @nbcwashington on Twitter and Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured.
