Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Craft shows and design fairs are the story of the season, with SOFA in town this week, Brooklyn Designs and the ICFF lining up for May, and much more.

But today I added something altogether different to my calendar: the first ever international kite design competition and kite flying event in NYC!

Called FlyNY, the event takes May 9 out at Riverside Park's Pier 1 (at 70th St.) in Manhattan from 10:30 to 4:30. It's free and open to the public. Anyone can enter their handmade kite and fly it on the day of the event.

I love kites and can't wait to check out this event!

Dig the fly graphic design, too...
