A family tradition with thousands of Bostonians of all ages, the annual Boston Kite Festival, will take place at Franklin Park Playstead on May 17. Boston Bikes will have free bike 'rentals' and helmets for all size riders so you can explore the park on wheels or join a guided tour. Visitors can participate in interactive games, and snack on a variety of food. Kites and event t-shirts will be available for sale. This festival, a Boston tradition dating back to the late 1960s, will be held in a new location by the Shattuck Picnic Grove and tennis courts. Parking is limited, so public transportation is recommended. Keep your fingers crossed for a windy, gorgeous spring day!

Sat., May 17, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Free. Franklin Park, Seaver Street, Dorchester.
