Kite Party Huntington Beach

March 9 & 10, Huntington Beach Pier

See Kite Party Website

Note this is the second Saturday in March and traditionally the March General Meeting is moved to the Third Saturday since a number of members will be at Kite Party.

To be an official Kite Party participant you must be registered (limited number). However if you don’t make the cut you can still go. Lots of good stuff to see and people to meet and talk to. You can always go a short ways down the beach and fly if you just can’t stand not flying.

Activities: We have been asked by the folks at Kite Flite to come out and fly at Seaport Village. A fun place to fly but parking can be a challenge if you are a late arriver and a bit expensive if you are an early arriver. We had a great time last year. See report here: Seaport Village.
