    We were there

    What an amazing display of kites and kit control. There were many Amish there as well as folks from all over the US. Everyone had a great time. Too bad Sunday is a dead day. Saturday, buggies, cars and people everywhere but on Sunday nothing was open and not a buggy in sight. We had to drive quite a distance to find someplace open for breakfast.

    Amazing that they can keep their kites from tangling. Some pretty large kites too. Looks like a fun day.

      I wonder how do they keep from tangling. That is a lot of kite activity going on. Maybe they keep a greater distance than the perspective of the photos suggests.

    Seasonal fun

    Our Park District had a kite fly a few weeks ago (annual event), though ours wasn’t as big as this. It IS fun to see the kites themselves, especially the hand made ones that can be so unique. I didn’t have a place to fly a kite as a kid in the city, but enjoyed flying them in my kids’ schoolyards once we moved to the suburbs. I, too, wonder how the heck one keeps them from tangling!

    Kite flying is a rite of spring—it cheers me up to look up and see a kite in the sky, no matter where or when! Some of these look amazing!

    Question: Would the Amish consider kite flying a “no-no” on Sunday? If so, why? (As usual, just wondering…)
