Celebrate International Peace Day

Saturday, September 23rd, Free, Kite Flight for Peace, FDR Four Freedoms Park

What better way to have fun celebrating peace than flying kites caught in East River breezes with the United Nations for a backdrop? Again, this year, all ages are invited to build and fly kites at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in celebration of International Peace Day on September 23rd.

"Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace."

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, an internationally acclaimed site directly across the East River channel from the United Nations, continues its tradition of celebrating freedom and peace by hosting one and all at a free event that turns its graceful sloping meadow into a field of joyful kite flying.
