Parks and People, Parks Canada's cooperating association on PEI organizes this annual kite-flying extravaganza at Port-la-Joye—Fort Amherst National Historic Site, in Rocky Point. Enjoy a day of soft activity for the whole family overlooking scenic Charlottetown Harbour. Come back on Canada Day, when the site becomes an ideal viewing point for Charlottetown’s fireworks display – one of the largest in Eastern Canada.
