Kites Over Mobile coming to Brookley by the Bay April 15-16 

Mobile, Ala. — Kites Over Mobile is back and will be bigger than ever this year as we bring the high-flying fun to the home of Mobile’s newest park: Brookley by the Bay! 

Since 2021, the Kites Over Mobile festival has attracted thousands of Mobilians and visitors to fly kites, watch professional kite flying demonstrations and enjoy a weekend of live music and fun. This year’s festival is set to be better than ever, with professional kite flying demonstrations, show kite displays, a kite hospital, live local music, candy drops and all kinds of family-friendly fun.  

Kites Over Mobile 2023 will also be the first City of Mobile event hosted at the Brookley by the Bay Park (254 Old Bay Front Drive). This beautiful waterfront setting is perfect for showing off your kite-flying skills, learning from some of the region’s best flyers or enjoying the scenery with family and friends. If you have a favorite kite, feel free to bring it, but vendors will also have kites for sale. Pack a snack or a full picnic and spend the day in one of the most beautiful places on Mobile Bay.   

This free, two-day event will take place on Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 16, from noon to 5 p.m. Parking will also be free. Kites Over Mobile is brought to you by the Mobile Parks and Recreation Department (MPRD) with special assistance from Chicago Kite.
