We have had some perfect days for flying a kite at Smith Mountain Lake here lately. When was the last time you took your kids out and watched their faces light up with the thrill of getting a kite soaring high? If it has been far too long, then remedy that situation on March 22nd and 23rd at Hickory Hills Vineyard when they hold their annual Kite Fly.
Kites have been a part of human history for hundreds of years and there are many interesting things you can learn about them. For instance, you can learn to make your kite, or if you have never flown one, you can find clear instructions on the basics of flight.
