Once every two years, in Dieppe, there is an international kite festival. Kite fliers from all over the world come here to compete in several competitions, from the most beautiful kites, to kite combats.
Thousands of people attend during the weekend, either to fly kites, or to admire them. 100's of kites are in the air at any time during the weekend, and when the sun is out, it's a sight to be seen.
This year, the festival was honoring Thailand.
They were not only small or normal kites. There were many large ones.
Many cartoon characters were transformed into kites.
The air was full of them, and could be seen from very far.
You could hear the Thai music all over the place. Reminded me of our honeymoon...
On the other side of the beach, on the grass, was where the completions was being held.
In between the two areas where tents from some 50 countries, all with their own kites.
Anyone could fly their own kite, and kites were being sold for those who wanted to give it a try.
It's a nice atmosphere, so if you're around in September, give it a shot.
