Organizers will by flying a "red, white and blue 25-by-14-foot behemoth" during the free-to-attend even, and prizes will be awarded for the best handmade kite, best ground display, highest-flying kite, youngest kite flier and youngest-at-heart kite flier, notes the Daily Breeze. No pun intended. Also scheduled, a yo-yo competition and hot-dog-on-a-stick eating contest. Redondo Beach Pier, Noon to 5:00 p.m.
