This Week’s Theme: Kites
Oh. My. Word!
From April 13, 2013 “Day in Photos” at VOAnews.com comes this surreal yet delightful image of a multitude of kites doing what they do best: fly! Lots of great colors and mandala-like shapes to go around. Even the lampposts have mandala-like orbs on them as well. Very cool.
About the International Kite Festival in Berck-sur-Mer:
Almost 700,000 spectators come to the vast Berck-sur-Mer beach to contemplate the world’s best kite-makers’ new creations. Open to everyone, there is entertainment for all ages. Your little ones can learn how to make and fly kites in a safe environment. Marine life, astonishing flying creatures, giant octopuses, even memorable characters from your childhood undulate across the sky. A colourful festival where you have your feet in the sand and your head in the sky.
“Each year, every city in the world that can should have a multiday festival. More people meeting each other, digging new types of music, new foods, new ideas. You want to stop having so many wars? This could be a step in the right direction.” ~ Henry Rollins
