The Annual Kite Flying Festival is off to a good start, with a twist this year.
The Festival, which is in its 13th year, got underway at 9 o’clock this morning at Devil’s Bridge.
Calvin Pilgrim, the organiser, says us that only renewable materials have been used to make the kites this year.
“This year we have a company that does solar power so we are going green. All our competitions this year will be focused on kites that are made of renewable materials. That’s the trend we are going with this year and people can expect a wonderful spectacle of kites of all sizes, shapes, colours and a nice clean, fun-filled family atmosphere,” the official said.
Pilgrim noted there are some other unique features this year, especially one which was affected by the weather in recent years.
 “Hopefully we are going to be flying our traditional Chinese dragon kite this year. For the past couple years the wind has been very high but this year feels like the wind is going to be perfect for that kite. So, for those of you who haven’t seen a Chinese dragon kite, it will be in the air today,” he said.
The festival ends at 5 o’clock.
