His­tor­i­cally, scores of fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als com­pete in and pa­tron­ize this fun-filled day of kite-fly­ing. The classes of com­pe­ti­tion for 2016 are kids, adults and Fly­ing Aces; par­tic­i­pants will be judged in the cat­e­gories of big­gest fly­ing, most colour­ful, highest fly­ing, most pa­tri­otic, scari­est de­sign, most in­no­va­tive kite plus a new cat­e­gory of best kite made on site.

We have seen over time the growth and pop­u­lar­ity of both events and the beauty of unity and cel­e­bra­tion it fos­ters in fun, safe and pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­ments for fam­i­lies. We ap­plaud the ef­forts of all or­ga­niz­ers and par­tic­i­pants who unit­edly work to­wards en­sur­ing a qual­ity prod­uct is de­liv­ered and main­tained and we look for­ward to these part­ner­ships grow­ing even fur­ther.”
