An International Kite Festival will be organised for the first time in Belgaum (Karnataka, India)on 16th and 17th January 2011. Various teams across the country as also those of foreigners will be participating in the two-days festival.

Interestingly, Flyers will fly the Kites at night as well near Kote Kere, at Belgaum Fort, which is a first of its kind experiment in the entire country. Flying kites attached with lamps / lights during the night on 16th will be the Star Attraction of this unique festival.

Night flying

Great idea, to light up the night sky! Hope it goes well, this first time and in following years. Perhaps come back here after the event and post a spectacular night shot or 2?

I can tell you love kites...

Otherwise you wouldn't be all the way down here near the bottom of the page :-)

So, could you do me just a small favor? 

Please sign up for my free monthly publication, "Tethered Flying". No other emails will be sent, and your details are safe with me. You do need to be at least 16 years old. There's...

  • A huge "photo of the month" (via a link)
  • 3 "tips of the month" (one each for beginners, parents and the more experienced)
  • A "flight report of the month" (selected from my own flying logs, with a photo)

Looking forward to hearing from you...

P.S. My free kite-making e-book "Simplest Dowel Kites" can be downloaded as soon as you sign up.
