In this digital age, many children miss out on the simple joys of flying a kite. It’s like having a little bit of happiness on the end of a string, perhaps the ultimate carefree pastime…
Gozo’s skies were set alight with stunning colours thanks to a spectacular edition of the international kite festival in the San Dimitri area in Għarb.
The fourth edition of the festival, which took place over the weekend, was the perfect occasion bringing families, residents and tourists together to see different coloured kites decorate the sky.
The festival was filled with kites far from the normal traditional diamond shape and it included various types of kites, ranging from the shape of a horse, clown, rose, witches to even small cute shaped fish.
Some kites were simple, with single strings, while others were a bit more complicated to fly, with two strings.
Tourists from Austria, Italy, Switzerland and other countries were quick to express how inclusive they felt the festival was.
The festival came to a close Sunday night with a huge magnificent bonfire and fireworks, the perfect way to end festivities.
