The National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. on Saturday celebrates the start of kite season with its annual showcase of the crafts, according to the event's website.

The 2018 Blossom Kite Festival "showcases the creativity of kite makers and [the] skill of fliers from across the US and other countries through a variety of competitions and demonstrations," the event description says.

This year's edition of the festivities include such activities as a "Hot Tricks Showdown," a "Youth Kite Makers Competition" and a "Kick-Off Parade."

Washington, D.C. marks each spring with its yearly cherry blossom festival, and this year's edition marks the seventh time the beloved event boasts a kite-related spinoff.
