Second Broadneck Kite Festival Launches in April

Kara McGuirk-Allison recently told Patch that the playground renovation could be completed in May.

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 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.

Thanks Frank! With the county Rec and Parks and our own fundraising efforts, we will be building a $50k playground...similar in size to the one at Bay Head Park. We are excited! I'll keep you posted!
