In 1969, the first Franklin Park Kite Festival was held, and became an annual tradition for decades to come. In 2010, the Franklin Park Coalition brought back the event, reimagined as the Kite & Bike Festival. Held every year on the Saturday after Mother’s Day, the festival brings out more than 1,000 people to fly kites, ride bikes, learn to ride a bike, and picnic. With food trucks, kids’ bikes to “rent” for free, affordable kites for sale, bike mechanics on site, and the beautiful scenery of Franklin Park, this event is not to be missed!
One neighborhood resident describes the Kite & Bike Festival as “my favorite day ever in the twenty years I’ve lived in Boston!”
Come celebrate our own “opening day” in Franklin Park at the Kite & Bike Festival on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
