This weekend? Go fly a kite!

People keep telling you to go fly a kite?  That’s what you can do on Saturday, Kite Day at the Floyd Recreational Park just north of Floyd on Virginia Rte. 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..

Only one of the many things available in a busy March weekend in and around Floyd County for the next four days.

A selected list of what is available below.  Please double-check times because the list from the Floyd Tourism Office hiccupped because of Daylight Savings Time that arrived last weekend and their computerized calendar listed everything an hour late.  We corrected te times (we hope) but some might have been missed.  More details at the Visit Floyd VA website.
