Lift Off: A Waterfront Kite Festival
May 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This FREE family-friendly event on Pier 1 of Brooklyn Bridge Park offers all ages the opportunity to watch their kites soar above the Manhattan skyline and enjoy special activities exploring the science of flight. The event will emphasize S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts and outdoor adventures. The Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn will be open for anyone to bring their own kites to fly. New kites will also be sold at the event. Live DJs playing music, stilt walkers, jugglers, and a large-scale bubble show featuring giant bubbles large enough to put kids inside of make for a fun filled afternoon.
