The 100-foot squid will fly again over Haulover Park. It and hundreds of other kites, tails, lines and more will stretch into the South Florida skies as part of our 18th year free kite festival  

Skyward Kites and Miami-Dade Parks and Recreations put on the October staple at Haulover Park. This year's event features kite-making classes, demonstrations by experts.  Kite makers from Cuba and Haiti, Pakistan, India, South America and more will have a chance to compete for the honor of highest-flying kite.

The free Kite Day takes place from noon till 5 p.m. Sunday at Haulover Park, 10800 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, 33154

It's a great family activity. Skyward Kites, a kite-selling trailer in the park,  helps put on the annual event. We see many of the same happy families flying their kites here time after time. We will have bounce houses, chalk street drawing, face painting and fun kite flying competitions for prizes.
