The Bali Kite Festival will again be held on the beach of Padang Galak near Sanur June 18-20, 2014.
Hundreds of Kites – some as large as a truck or a bus – will be sent soaring by teams of young men traveling from banjars across Bali to compete with other kites lovingly assembled over the weeks leading up to the event.
Technical meetings between the competing teams are now underway to socialize the rules governing the three categories of kite and guidelines to enhance the safety of participants and spectators alike.
Open to the public, the Bali Kite Festival and the colorful teams in obligatory Balinese dress have become a staple event on Bali’s calendar.
