FDR Four Freedoms Park adds annual traditions to the year on Roosevelt Island. On September 22nd, in coordination with International Peace Day and the United Nations General Assembly, the park again hosts Kite Flight For Peace, a free event that runs from 11:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m.

All comers are invited "to design and fly kites selecting stripes, colors, and symbols that represent personal ideas about peace and freedom."

Kiteflier and educator Archie Stewart will enliven the afternoon, flying a variety of sport kites. He'll also make himself available to assist and educate.

Stewart is a member of: American Kitefliers Association, Past Board Member and Chairman of Festivals and Competitions for Kites Over New England, the regional kite club of New England. He is also a member of ConnectiKiters kite club, headquartered in Norwalk, CT and a member and competitor of the Eastern League Flyers Association.

Here's a video we took during last year's event:

While all activities are free, registration for workshops is recommended. Kites will be given out for free on a first come first served basis.
