Kite pilots, ready your ribbons for the second-annual Broadneck Kite Festival at Broadneck Park.
Last year's festival drew a crowd of kite enthusiasts to the park for a fundraiser that benefited the Friends of Broadneck Park, a group that successfully drove a campaign to revitalize the park's playground.
This year's festival will kick off on April 21, with a rain date of April 28, according to FBP organizer Kara McGuirk-Allison.
In August, former Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold confirmed that the county would fund a $35,000 renovation at the playground, set to begin in spring.
McGuirk-Allison recently told Patch that the work could be completed in May.
"We should start seeing some action at the playground in April with a finish date around May 1," she said.
The FBP is still running a fundraiser for the playground where families can donate money for personalized bricks to be laid around the site of the new playground. For details, check the FBP website.
