Niagara Falls Kite Festival Canada | Niagara Falls Kite Flying | Canada Kite Festival

It’s been very windy in Niagara Falls this past few days and I’ve seen a number of people flying kites along the Niagara Parkway above the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. It made me think about what happened in 1847 when engineers were trying to think about how they could get a line across the Niagara River Gorge to begin construction of the Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge. Remember there were no helicopters to complete the task.

The answer was to have a kite-flying contest to solve the problem. A $5.00 prize was offered to the first person who could successfully fly a light cord across the narrowest section of the river. It’s where the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge now stands. A boy by the name of Homan Walsh won the prize when he flew his kite from the American side to the Canadian side of the river. Gradually a heavier cord, then rope and finally a wire were pulled across the river and construction of the first bridge over Niagara began.

cervia Festival Internazionale degli Aquiloni Italia| Cervia Italy Iternational Kite Festival

We flew to Italy to participate in two kite festivals at the beaches of the northern Adriatic shores. Kite friends from all over the world attended with perfect winds, warm sunny days and lots and lots of flying colors. The 28th annual Cervia International Kite festival is one of the longest running kite festivals in Europe. The festival ran for ten days, two weekends and powered by pasta and vino. We then went to another smaller festival in the beach town of Rosolina Mare near Venice to get more sun, wind and kites into the air. We love Italy!

Leaf Kites | Ecco Friendly Kites | Leaves Kites Single Line Kites – Kite Festival India

LEAF KITES

SINGLE LEAF KITE

A simple leaf kite popular in Bali and surrounding countries – flown with a long tail.

It is thought that leaf kites were the first ever to be flown. This type of kite was used and still is for fishing. At the bottom of the kite a line and hook is attached instead of a tail which enables the fisherman to catch the larger fish which swim further away from the shadow of the boat. This method has been used the for over 2000 years.

LEAF KITE


A more sophisticated leaf kite made from the large leaves of the bread fruit tree.This type of kite has been flown for 1000’s of years This kite is also used by the Indonesian fisherman for fishing.

A very rare kite. The leaves are stitched together with thin strips of natural fibre.

Winter kite flying at Lake Harriet January 8

Winter kite flying at Lake Harriet January 8

 

 

But I, and many kite flyers, did get out on the lake in 2006.

To keep a kid’s attention, a melted marshmallow or two

Of course as the lake is frozen, skating may be in order,

or just walking with the dog, under kites, next to tykes.

A simple stroll, will do.

There were huge kites, with a puffed up Blue Meanie

and assorted friends,

The 2007 Winter Kite Festival was also unable to be held on either of the two dates. However Mr. Kite and many friends returned in 2008, and shared a line.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources offered ice fishing lessons and lines to the youth, for free. I am fairly sure the fish were not threatened.

Even some teens were impressed.

The large kites were impressive as were their lines, and the anchors in the ice.

And many kids of all ages flew their more modest craft. The East Harriet Neighborhood Association supplied many of the volunteers and served up hot cocoa.

captured more images of the services the neighborhood association and others groups assisting in 2009. The event is free and you should bring your kite (and camera), but inexpensive kites are available at the site.

The volunteers help in conducting free medallion hunts, and lead snowshoe excursions.

Much like the huge kites floating above, some immense horses made a profound presence as they pulled the free wagon ride.

It was interesting how the two horses maneuvered together; timed team work with such natural rhythms. The fish kept away from the chase just as naturally.

But, but, , the fish was too big to fit through the hole! As a blue fish shaped kite swam the wind just above heads.

The following year, 2010, a huge bear appeared, an outstandingly large bear with HUG ME on its chest.

The new mixed with the old, the huge with the bold, as kids danced with the bear.

Still Mr. Fish evades my bait, as lines are tussled, and kites towed.
