The kiddos are out of school, pack up some kites, lawn chairs, a portable canopy, a picnic and head over to North Central Park for a day of fun in the sun. Don’t feel like packing lunches, don’t worry! There will be local food vendors on-site and you can purchase yummy goodies from them. Laredo is known for year-round sunny skies, make sure you’ve applied some sun block, take your sunglasses and pack an umbrella or two.
Some activities that will be taking place at the Kite Festival is a petting zoo and pony rides, inflatable slides, a build your own kite contest and new for this year is Knocker Ball. At a press conference that was held last week, Knocker Ball took over some of their inflatable contraptions. According to their Facebook profile, Knocker Ball is Laredo’s source for LAUGH OUT LOUD FUN! The most exciting, high flying, body flipping experience taking the whole world by storm. I’m 100% positive that I will not be joining in on the body flipping activities but I will be a sideline spectator. Who doesn’t like a good laugh? Special thanks to one of my good friends, A-Train for coming in clutch and lending me his group shot.
