Kites aren’t just for kids any more—there’s something for everyone at the Berkeley Kite Festival. Experience the excitement and artistry of modern kite flying. Special guests include the Sode Cho Kite Team of Hamamatsu, Japan. Today’s Hamamatsu Matsuri is a celebration of the renewal of life and the confirmation of community spirit.
