Every year, the public is invited to attend and participate in the Annual San Juan National Historic Site Kite Festival on the historic grounds of Castillo San Felipe del Morro. As kites enthusiasts around the island know, the brisk ocean breeze and beautiful green grounds of El Morro make it a very popular local site for kite flying. Unfortunately, every year the park staff removes tons of litter, kite string and discarded kites from the historic walls and buildings, as well as the Paseo del Morro and San Juan Bay. This festival is focused at educating the public about this damage to our cultural heritage, as well as the adverse impact of the wildlife in waters of San Juan Bay.
