Another must-attend event coming up is the first annual Kites on the Green Festival. Come to any or all of the Kites on the Green Workshops at Johnston Public Library to learn how to make and fly kites. After your design is finished, head out to the Johnston Commons (large green space surrounding the library) to fly with the assistance of professional fliers. Kites on the Green Workshops are on Saturday, March 22, Saturday, April 5 and Saturday, April 19 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
After you have learned everything you need to know about kites at one of the workshops, come to the Kites on the Green Festival on May 3rd at 2:00pm. Fly your own kite at the Johnston Commons and stick around for food, music and prizes.
