Soaring, swirling, kites of all kinds will bob and weave as they dance in the wind at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site during Kites Over the Hudson, on Saturday, September 20th, 2 PM to 4 PM.
Free kites will be given to the first 150 children 15 and under during this Hudson River Ramble event. Prizes will be awarded in various kite categories, and refreshments will be served to all who attend. And there will be a Kite Hospital, staffed by members of Chapter 1782 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, to repair most kite catastrophes!
