Blossom Kite Festival (photos)
It was perfect flying weather as hundreds of kites of various shapes and sizes populated the skies over the National Mall on Saturday, March 31. The Blossom Kite Festival, formerly the Smithsonian Kite Festival, is an annual kite event usually held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in late March during the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
