There will be kites of all shapes, food vendors, giveaways, and other fun things to participate in! This is a free event for the public for anyone to enjoy! The festival starts at 10 am and ends at 4 pm. If you get there early enough, you may even get the chance to get a goodie-bag. Don’t forget to visit the animals while you are here!
