Our Pick for the Weekend: Go Fly a Kite

Excited as a kid about the upcoming Kite Festival, part of the Cherry Blossom activities going on in the next couple of weeks? Then you'll want to make sure to attend Saturday's "Kites of Asia" at the National Air and Space Museum. There will be an exhibit detailing the history of Asian kites, and materials and folks will be on hand to help you make your own kite to fly in the festival on March 31. You'll even have the chance, just this one day, to see the first aeronautical object donated to the Smithsonian, a 130-year-old kite given in 1876. Free. 10 am to 3 pm.

"Kites of Asia" is just one of our picks for events happening around town this weekend For even more fun times and entertainment, including The Spinto Band’s catchy pop and a honest-to-goodness freak show, check out Where & When Weekend, our regular column on the best of what's going on around town this week.
