49th Annual Redondo Beach Pier Kite Festival

Channel your inner child with this spring tradition. One of Southern California's longest running kite festivals returns to the Redondo Beach Pier on Sunday in March 12th from noon – 5pm. Whether you choose to participate or relax on the beach and take in the colorful kites flying overhead, it’s bound to be an awe-inspiring visual experience.

Attendees can bring their own kite or purchase a kite at one of the many shops on the Redondo Beach Pier or International Boardwalk. Kites can be flown on the beach along the Esplanade, immediately south of the pier. Prizes will be awarded in various categories including the best handmade kite, youngest kite flyer and the youngest at heart kite flyer. 1969 classic rock band will perform live on the center stage, followed by Craig's Hot Dog on a Stick eating contest.

Grab the kids and head to the beach for a fun filled Sunday afternoon. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit redondopier.com
