Georgia Kite Festival Flies Into Atlanta

(Atlanta, GA) - When most Atlantans are asked to remember a time when they've flown a kite, most can't remember and many never have! That will all change on Saturday, May 15 from 11 am - 7 pm when the inaugural Georgia Kite Festival ascends on Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, GA.

The Georgia Kite Festival will be a free day of family fun designed to provide unique experiences that promote learning, healthy outdoor activities, family and new adventures. The Kite Festival will feature a number of interactive activities including games and attractions for children, live musical and theatrical performances, a 'kite konstruction' zone where families can work together to build custom kites, and health screenings for children and adults.

The Georgia Kite Festival is the brainchild of Atlanta-based event marketing company, Divine Management, whose CEO is a native of Massachusetts, a place where kite festivals occurred every year during his childhood.

"I can still remember having such a great time flying kites as a child, so we felt that it was the opportune time to establish a new event in Georgia centered around kites," said Rodney Pierce, CEO of Divine Management. "We are happy that our current Festival partners Humana Healthcare, The Atlanta Braves and the American Kitefliers Association have joined us to introduce this awesome event while making a meaningful contribution to the Atlanta community."

In addition to kite flying, other activities that will occur at the Georgia Kite Festival include interactive educational games for kids courtesy of Big Thinkers, live radio remote broadcasts and prize giveaways by the event's media partners, opportunities to apply for jobs at Six Flags Over Georgia and much more. Special guests will include US Olympic Bobsledder & 2010 Bronze Medalist Elana Meyers.
