|Kites of every size and shape were represented|
The festival has free kites that kids can color and fly. This video was taken early in the day before a zillion kids' kites were in the air!
One of the neatest things about the Kite Fest is that my 1st cousin, once removed (my cousin's son... in case you don't understand the 'removed' thing either!) is a professional kite flyer, and we had the opportunity to meet him.
His name is John Barresi. I attempted to make a sketch of him in action. He is the man calling the shots, closest to the camera in my video, below. He is an amazing guy. He bought his first kite at this very festival 26 years ago... and has turned his passion into a career.
