Apart from more than 100 artisans from cities and provinces nationwide, the biggest-ever kite festival in the North will draw five international kite clubs, from Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.

Each country will bring to the festival unique kites in four categories: traditional kite, aerodynamic kite, art kite, and remote control kite.

Besides, a lot of creative and entertainment activities will be organized from 8am until 5pm daily.

One of the top kite flyers in the world, Lam Gia Hoac, a Vietnamese national currently living in Canada, will treat visitors to his fine-crafted kites and skilful demonstrations. Winner of the Vung Tau International Kite Festival 2013, Nguyen Truong Huy will be among the festival’s participants.

In addition to having the chance to witness 100m-long kites flying in the sky, festival-goers will be able to create their own kites under the guidance of kite artisans./.
