Kite festival gets running start
HALIFAX — Shifty winds and at least 30 kites danced above the Commons on Saturday afternoon. All the flying objects and variable gusts suggest that next year»s Kite Flying Festival could use an air traffic controller.
But a few crossed kite lines didn’t stop the fun.
Among the kites aloft were Chinese panel kites, tetrahedron-shaped cells and store-bought models decorated as butterflies, Spiderman and Barbie.
Rina Otero, director of King’s View Academy, said the school wanted to organize a festival that tapped into an activity shared by cultures around the world. Students attended a kite-building workshop in preparation for the day. She said Saturday’s cool, cloudy weather didn’t disrupt the inaugural event.
“For a beginning, I think it’s great. There are a lot of people out here that we don’t know,” said Otero.
She hopes to have musicians and involve vendors selling international foods at next year’s event.
