Young and older kite enthusiasts, professionals and amateurs, families and individuals gather every year for a festive event on The National Mall, painting the sky with hundreds of colorful kites.

The event that takes place at the Washington Monument is spectacular. Professional kite launchers show kite flying abilities in different shapes and sizes, along with children and non-professionals who fly simple kites.

Among the participants various competitions are held, include kite battles (Rokkaku), Hot Tricks Showdown and more. During the festival there are workshops where you can build a self-built kite, or buy a prepared kite.

United States background and overview
Britain's American colonies broke with the mother country in 1776 and were recognized as the new nation of the United States of America following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 37 new states were added to the original 13 as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions. The two most traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the Civil War (1861-65), in which a northern Union of states defeated a secessionist Confederacy of 11 southern slave states, and the Great Depression of the 1930s, an economic downturn during which about a quarter of the labor force lost its jobs. Buoyed by victories in World Wars I and II and the end of the Cold War in 1991, the US remains the world's most powerful nation state. Since the end of World War II, the economy has achieved relatively steady growth, low unemployment and inflation, and rapid advances in technology.
