is all about flying kites. Taking over Haulover Beach Park (10800 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach) Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., the kite fest marks the unofficial beginning of fall in South Florida, and with reason: October is the time of year when the humidity begins to subside (just a bit) and the weather becomes (somewhat) bearable. That’s enough of a reason to celebrate by flying a kite over the Atlantic. Expect to see a 30-foot Nemo and 100-foot squid (among other sea creatures), a 100-foot scuba diver, and kites of all sorts soaring high above Haulover Beach Park. Hosted by Skyward Kites and Miami-Dade Parks, the free event will also feature paper-kite-building classes and demonstrations, kite-flying competitions for kids and adults, food trucks, and other treats. Just remember to bring your kite. But if forget or don't have a kite of your own, Skyward Kites will hook you up with one. Visit skywardkites.com
