Zilker Kite Festival

The Zilker Park Kite Festival celebrated its 83rd year Sunday with little wind, but plenty of fun.  The South Austin event has the honor of being the longest continuous kite festival in the United States.  Thousands turned out for a beautiful day at the park, which proves to be yet another reminder of the wonderful city we live in.
