Let’s go fly a kite at Lift Off at the Brooklyn Bridge Park on May 5.
The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is launching its 2018 programming season with a kite festival. Visitors will have an opportunity to watch their kites soar above the Manhattan skyline and enjoy special hands-on activities exploring the science of flight.
The Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be open for anyone to bring their own kites to fly, and new kites will also be sold at the event. Live DJs, stilt walkers, jugglers, and a large-scale bubble show make for a fun-filled afternoon for everyone.
Stop by the DIY pinwheel station, where you can build and decorate pinwheels to see the wind in action.
Lift Off: A Waterfront Kite Festival, May 5 from noon to 2:30 pm. Free. Suitable for all ages.
