Kids: Kite Flying in Dumbo

By Alexandra Glorioso

First Saturday of every month: Galapagos~Kids introduces the DUMBO Kite Flying Society. DKFS members arise on the first Saturday morning of every month to ascend and soar between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, glide over the East River, and vie for the titles of biggest kite, smallest kite, worst kite, longest flying kite and most-improved kite.

DKFS members salute innovative kite engineers of all skills provided they possess the will and fortitude of kite fliers who have come before; such as Alexander Graham Bell, Benjamin Franklin, the Wright Brothers, and Submarine Spies, mariners who lofted antennas into the sky to talk to the folks back home. Second only to birds (poor Icarus!), kites were the first inspiration to explore reality of lifting man into the sky. Come fly a kite!

Starter kites provided. Certificate of membership and kite flying license’s will be issued, by us.

Read about the DUMBO Kite Flying Society in the New York Daily News!

Meet at the city park (near pirate ship playground) at the foot of Main Street, not the State Park. The State Park has rules and they won’t let you fly a kite. We told them to go fly a kite.)
