HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Families spent several hours Saturday flying kites in Huntsville.

There was a large turnout for the second annual Kite Festival at John Hunt Park – presented by AshaKiran and the City of Huntsville.  The crowd was about double the size of the first event in 2013.

All of the soccer fields at John Hunt were packed with people flying kites. Most people passed through the Jaycees Building on their way in, which had booths from different community groups.

The weather was perfect, too – sunny and breezy – perfect for flying kites!
