The 2010 SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival takes flight in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on June 19 and 20. This world-class event attracts kite flyers, enthusiasts and fun lovin’ people from across North America to one prairie field to enjoy an exciting weekend of kiting and family fun.

This free admission festival features beautiful, original handmade art kites, giant creature kites the size of houses, speeding kite buggies racing eighty kilometers an hour, screaming stunt kites flying in tandem, and a one hundred kite train soaring to the skies.

At Windscape, everyone can experience the thrill of flying in the vast Saskatchewan air space with some of North America's best kite artists and performers.

At eleven in the morning and three in the afternoon, Toronto’s ‘The Silly People’ will capture everyone’s attention with comedic juggling, yoyos and all-around hilarity. Kids of all ages will enjoy balloon sculpting, the bubble station, mystery sandpile, bol racing, face-painting and ongoing kite workshops. There is also a Kite Store with many kinds of kites of all levels.

The Long Day's Night Music Festival complements the kite festival. Three nights, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, featuring amazing celtic rock music by the Mudmen, beautiful reggae by Souljah Fyah, and exciting latin funk by Santa Lucia.

Please join us for the Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current on the Southwest Hill. The festival begins on Saturday, June 19 at 10:00 am and has no admission charge. It runs Sunday until 5:00 pm. Details at www.windscapekitefestival.ca or 306.778.2686.

I hope the potholes on Marsden St. are repaired before the kite festival. This street is an embarrassment to the city

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
