GW08 Giant Kite Festival

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:55 am

On Monday I went to go see a giant kite festival. When I say giant kites, I mean giant kites - that takes 20 people to set up and 50 people to run with the rope. Even then a lot of the time it just fell right back down to the ground. The weather was overcast but quite windy so good for kiteing. There were various teams and also medium and small kites. As well as many people flying their own small kite.
