Hey there, Bostonians and visitors alike! Are you ready to kick off the summer with a day filled with laughter, color, and community spirit? Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 18th, because the Franklin Park Kite & Bike Festival is back and it’s soaring to new heights!

Imagine a sky painted with kites of all shapes and sizes, fluttering like a mosaic of dreams against the blue canvas. The Franklin Park Playstead will be transformed into a vibrant playground from 12 PM to 4 PM (and don’t worry, if the rain tries to dampen our spirits, we have a rain date set for Sunday, May 19th, from 2 PM to 5 PM).

This festival isn’t just a celebration; it’s a 50-year-old tradition that brings together over a thousand people to share in the joy of kite flying and bike riding. Whether you’re a kite connoisseur or a biking enthusiast, there’s something for everyone. And if you’re neither, come for the food trucks, the music, and the unbeatable vibe!

For the Kite Lovers: Bring your own kite to dance with the wind or make one with us. It’s a perfect chance to show off your kite-flying skills or learn new ones. The sky’s the limit, literally!

For the Bike Buffs: Younger kids can try out bikes with Countdown to Kindergarten, and for the grown-ups, REI’s got a bicycle repair station ready to go. Plus, free helmets! Safety first, fun always!

For the Foodies: Did someone say food trucks? Yes, we did! Refuel with some of the best local eats on wheels. From savory to sweet, we’ve got your cravings covered.

For the Community: This festival is all about connections. It’s a day where families, friends, and neighbors come together to create memories that last a lifetime. One resident even called it, “My favorite day ever in the twenty years I’ve lived in Boston!”

Getting There: Leave the car at home and join us in being green! Bike, walk, or take public transit. There’s limited parking, but unlimited fun.

So, what are you waiting for? Spread the word, bring your friends, and let’s make the Franklin Park Kite & Bike Festival 2024 the best one yet!

That should be a fun event, there is nothing that captures the eye like a sky filled with hot air balloons.
