Go Fly a Kite in Bali

Bali Kite Festival July 10-13, 2008.

(5/18/2008) The annual tradition of the Bali Kite Festival will return to the beaches of Sanur at Padang Galak July 10-13, 2008, where the ecvent is expected to draw some 800 teams competing for honor. As in the past, large teams of young men from local villages across Bali - all dressed in traditional Balinese costumes, will launch kites so large and elaborate that two lanes of traffic are sometimes blocked when transporting the kites to and from the competition grounds.

Considered a major event on the international kiting calendar, teams from a number of countries, including Malaysia, Japan, German and India - are expected to travel to Bali.

All participants are required to attend a mandatory briefing on July 6th during which rules and guidelines will be distributed to all teams. A very Balinese affair, teams are required to wear traditional dress while competing in the Festival.
