Make plans now to attend the 10th Annual Kite Festival!!  You won’t want to miss this unique and colorful event. The festival is FREE to the public with a wide variety of food options available for lunch via food trucks! Bring your blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy the fun, family atmosphere! We have two professional kite flyers and demonstrators this year and we are praying for WIND! Join us for a day filled with kite flying, art (kite painting), vendors, food, and music! For more information, email Cindy McDannel at or go to and click on “Kite Festival.” This event made possible by Fine Arts Blount, Newell Rubbermaid and Parks & Recreation.


Due to the popularity of this event and the need for space for food trucks, parking at Pearson Springs may become full quickly. We are offering a shuttle service to the festival... just park your car in the lot in front of National Fitness on Broadway, and a friendly driver will shuttle you back and forth!

10:00 AM - 4:30 PM • April 14, 2019 (Rain Date: April 28) • Pearson Springs Park
