35,000 Expected at Berkeley Kite Festival
The Berkeley Kite Festival is marked by a candy drop.
Look, up in the air. It's a kite. No -- it's tens of thousands of kites. And candy dropped from the sky!
The flying machines take the air between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on both days. Parking is available for $10 a car at the Golden Gate Fields lot, just north of the event site at Cesar Chavez Park at the Berkeley Marina.
The event's high point -- at least for the kiddies -- is the famed candy drop, when the kites drop 400 pounds of free sugary treats over the course of the weekend, the newspaper reported.
It's like a "giant pinata," the newspaper reported.
