To celebrate National Kite Month, starting April 1, Porter Branch will once again display a variety of fabulous kites suspended from the ceiling. The exhibition will be provided by Stafford resident, Mike Clark, a lifelong kite enthusiast. Mr. Clark has more than 1,400 kites in his collection, including single, double, and quad line kites, as well as stunt kites. He started collecting and making his own kites when he was a child. The exhibit was put together and hung by professional kite flyers Jack Wilson, Harold Ames, and Mike Phillippe from Stafford County. It is sponsored by the American Kitefliers Association and Wings Over Washington Kite Club.
Enjoy these colorful beauties and learn more about kites, how to fly them, and how to make them.
