D.C.’s Blossom Kite Festival is over, but kite-flying enthusiasts in Fairfax County have a new opportunity to let loose closer to home.

The Boro in Tysons will have various kite-related activities and flying demonstrations for its inaugural “Kite Fest,” set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 23.

The festivities will include live music from a DJ, super-sized board games, a free kite for the first 100 visitors, and stations where people can decorate kites to be entered into a contest for prizes.

There will also be crafts, children’s book readings, and face painting, courtesy of The Gift of Language, a Tysons-based Spanish immersion school. The D.C. nonprofit Turning the Page will host a pop-up bookstore.

“We wanted to bring all the fun of kite flying to the heart of Northern Virginia!” Tanya Graves, senior vice president of marketing and tenant services at The Boro, said by email. “We were inspired by this wonderful tradition that celebrates and welcomes the spring season and bright, sunny days ahead.”

Kite Fest will unfold at Boro Park (8350 Broad Street) and Sandlot Tysons, an events pop-up that reopened for a second season at the mixed-use development on Saturday (April 9).

Tickets to the festival are free, but advance registration through Eventbrite is required.

Other events coming to the development this spring include a return of its “Gambit” chess tournament, which Graves says was “a crowd favorite” in November. Like last time, The Boro resident and chess grandmaster Rashad Babaev will face off against multiple players of different skill levels at the same time.

The development will also kick off a series of free, outdoor “Honest Soul Yoga” classes on Friday (April 15). The classes will be held in Boro Park at noon every other Friday through May 27.

Anyone planning to chow down after finishing a shavasana, however, will have to make do with The Boro’s existing eateries, as work continues on an upcoming bistro, taco restaurant and burger joint.

Circa, El Bebe and Caliburger are still under construction and are planned for a summer opening,” Graves said.
