2008 PACIFIC RIM KITE FESTIVAL

I never thought flying a kite could be this much fun! If you’re lucky enough to read this on the day I posted it, do yourself a favor and go to Vanier Park in Kitsilano to check out some very cool kite flying action at the Pacific Rim Kite Festival, including performances by multiple kite world record holder Ray Bethell and the quad line kite team iQuad:

I felt like buying myself one of those acrobatic kites after watching this event. :)
