Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Kite Day at Katonah Museum of Art has kids of all ages running through the field.

Kites took flight at the Harvey School's lower field Saturday afternoon in Katonah, as children of all ages ran through the grass under clear skies trying to catch some wind.

The Katonah Museum of Art hosted Kite Day with a Chinese Dragon-kite theme relating to its current exhibit, Rising Dragon: Contemporary Chinese Photography. Children ages 3 and up had the chance to build their own kites at the museum's Learning Center before heading down the street to the field at the Harvey School to fly them.

Along with the kites they made, people brought their own of all shapes and sizes to fly. There were demonstrations of fighting kites, instruction on how to fly them for beginners, and giant Dragon Kites.

Its so nice to see many people come together to just enjoy something as simple as kite flying. The time spend doing this activity is fun and it is also a good opportunity for family bonding.

Kite flying is not only all about flying the kite, since it is easy to make yourself, people start to use their creativity while designing their kite. That's where originality comes in. So for those who enjoy doing leisure activity and also spreading creativity, i guess it is time to try out kite flying.
