Bel Air Kite Festival 
Calling all available AKA Members,

“The Town of Bel Air Maryland’s Annual Kite Festival is scheduled for April 14, 2018 from 10 AM to 4 PM. We give away 750 FREE kites to children of all ages. Last year we gave out 500 FREE kites and they were all gone by  lunch time. Attendance is around 1,500+ people. This is a family fun event (no competition), however, we do have quite a few distinguished kite flyers who attend and volunteer at this event. Mr. Al Ault, founded this festival in 2005. He will be there along with many of his friends in the kite community.
