The park is filled with the buzz of people. Children run in between adults, laughing and carefree. Large bags are unzipped and colourful objects taken out. These are handled with care; many are looked at in admiration. String is unfurled and the colourful creations are given to the wind. The wind takes them eagerly, bringing them higher and higher towards the blue sky. Heads on the ground look up, admiring the colours, the size, and the different types of kites that fill the sky. It is the annual kite festival, and people are out showing their kites and their flying skills.
Have you ever been to a kite festival?
