On March 12th 2017, I got to experience the 43rd Festival of the Kite at Redondo Beach Pier (California)–free entry(!).
I wasn’t fan of the weather: it was a little chilly, overcast, and foggy. However, the winds were strong for kite-flying. It took us a little while to get our kite up, but once it was in the air, it didn’t want to come down.
The beach was crowded with kite-flyers; some people even had two kites going at the same time. The true hobbyists had what looked like a fishing reel. A few people braved the cold ocean, but I was more than happy to leave the sandy beach for a seafood restaurant with an excellent view.
I really wish the weather had been warmer, but it was nice pier to visit. It’s a definite must for kite flying enthusiasts and anyone looking to entertain young children.
Has anyone else gone to a kite flying festival or to Redondo Beach?
