[Saint Mary] Celebrate the Sky at Saint Mary, Missouri's Kite Festival March 28th - May 3rd, 2009
[Zephyrhills] A small exhibit of small kites from all over the world.
[Virginia Beach, Portsmouth] Welcome to the 5th Annual Virginia Beach Kite FestivalOur festival is geared for families and you can see many different types of kites - single line, dual line, and multiple-line kites. We invite you to engage the flyers and ask questions and above all, fly your kites. If you are interested in a particular kite or in kite flying, please ask and one of the fliers will be glad to answer your questions or teach you how to fly.Many of the fliers come from local kite clubs – Richmond Air Force or “RAF” from Richmond and Wings Over Washington or “WOW” from the D.C. area. Also featured are kite fliers from the New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida. Most flyers are members of the American Kitefliers Association (AKA), a national organization dedicated to educating the public in the art, history, technology, and practice of building and flying kites.Many of us fly in National Competitions. Some make their own kites being judged on their sewing skills, choice of color combinations, eye impact, themes, and aerodynamics. Multi-line kites competitors fly (or draw) figures in the air (squares, triangles, circles and more complex figures). Another competition event is called ballet where one or more fliers fly their kite(s) to music. Their goal is to bring an interpretation to the music through the movement of the kite(s).Thanks for joining us and have a great time!

We open the kite festival with a party at the Courthouse Galleries, in Portsmouth and work our way into fun for the whole weekend. Vendors will be selling their kites and products. The Richmond Air Force (RAF), Wings Over Washington (WOW) and members of several other kite clubs (New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida) will be providing demonstrations and instructions for dual and quad line kite flying for all the events. So please come and meet the kite flyers. To top it off Gary Engval will be traveling to us to fly his big, tremendous, oversized kites.Demonstrations will be throughout the day by: Peter Hedin, Les Duty, Adrianne &
