Kite Day planned March 22 at LBJ State Park, Historic Site

A chance to build and fly an old-fashioned 1900s-style kite is offered in a free activity Saturday, March 22, at the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site in Stonewall.

“LBJ Annual Kite Day” will welcome visitors to finish out kites from frames and materials for tails cut by staff and volunteers.

Visitors are welcome to bring kites from home or to purchase kites in the state park gift shop.

After construction, colorful kites will be flown at the state park’s baseball field on Coronet Street from 1-3 p.m.

Participation in the event is free of charge.

Visitors are asked to first stop at the LBJ Visitor Center to get their free park permit, event and park orientation and a park map. 

Park interpreters from the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm will be on-site in early-1900s attire to assist in kite making.

LBJ State Park and Historic Site is located one mile east of Stonewall on U.S. Highway 290.

More information on the site and events can be found by calling (830) 644-2252 or logging on to www.tpwd.state. on the Internet.
