The Kite Festival Lahaina
Celebrate the wide world of kites and national kite month in Lahaina during this annual family fun event! On Friday evening at Wo Hing Museum and Cookhouse on Front Street, check out displays of ancient and modern kites from around the world; kites are available for purchase. Enjoy presentations on Ancient Chinese Kites and Sport Kites, then join a community kite making project.
There are hands-on craft activities for kids, like kite making, and Chinese food available for sale. Go fly a kite on Saturday at the Lahaina Recreation Center field on Honoapi‘ilani Hwy. Kids can design and make a kite and teens can make free-form kite structures. At 11 am, the community’s Chinese serpent kite will take to the air in a kite flying demo. The sky becomes a canvas with colorful kites in all shapes. Bring your own kite to fly and get tips from the pros until 2 pm. Free admission to all events.
