Ruse Kite Festival
by Danny Nanchev
I am from the city of Ruse, Bulgaria, and I recently discovered that I LOVE kites - making them, flying them - you name it! So I found the MBK site, and became instantly hooked! Right now I am copying the plans and when I go out this evening I'll make some kites with my friends!
Back to the point. I'm writing in the Kite-Festival-Page, because I am going to organise a Kite Festival here, in my home town of Ruse. I'm going to propose it to the junior city council (a teenage city council, which makes decisions for teens' propositions or problems) and then, if I get lucky, they'll help me print out the ads and gather a whole lot of people to it.
I'm trying to start a tradition, for next year I'm thinking of going national, or even - multi-national. That's because Ruse is right on the Danube and has the only bridge in our country across the Danube. The mainstream of tourists pass through here, so I hope Romanians and other people would come next year.
Cross your fingers for me :-)
As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...
