Go Fly a Kite

Make a kite and fly it from the harbor's highest point!

Learn to make and decorate your own kite with materials provided during this drop-in program. Make your kite on the Visitor Center porch on Spectacle Island and ask park staff where to catch the best island breezes!

This program was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through generous funding from L.L. Bean.
