CIMG0262.JPGA very large kite73 viewsThis monster is a "signature" item at the festival. It is able to fly in both light and moderately heavy winds. It has always been up by the time we arrive and it seems to stay up the entire time. I once took a look at the lines that held it. They were attached to the bumper of a large pickup. Less massive display kites were anchored to stakes in the ground.
