One of our favorite family friendly events is upon us- Kite Flight is this Saturday at Socrates Sculpture Park*! Here’s more info from their website:

Using recycled materials, children and their families draw inspiration from the park’s fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline to build expressive kites, and then fly them in the park. Participants may choose between three different designs to produce and personalize handmade kites that explore ideas of flying, freedom, and community.

In addition to (hopefully) amazing weather, waterfront views, and kites, we’re looking forward to a very special menu from our friends at The Queens Kickshaw:

Cheddar & Mozzarella Grilled Cheese
Cider Cheese with Soft Pretzel
Chocolate Pudding with Hudson Valley Whipped Cream
Curried Pumpkin Seeds
Sweet Cider
Cold-brewed Coffee

The festivities kick off at 11am and run until 3pm.

Socrates Sculpture Park, 33-01 Vernon Blvd. (at the end of Broadway)

(*PS- their 2015 exhibitions open May 17th! We can’t wait!)
