Watch: Aspire International Kite Festival 2019
One of the most vibrant festivals in Qatar, the Aspire International Kite Festival, will open on Wednesday with its third edition at the Aspire Park turning the skies above the venue into a 3-D artistic platform.
Featuring more than 80 international kite flyers with their fabulous designs, the festival will run from March 6 to 9 and host a kite-flying competition with four award categories.
The categories comprise: The Best Design and Innovation, The Biggest Kite, The Longest Kite, the Best National Flag. Representatives of China, France, Pakistan and Mexico were the winners of each of these categories last year. This year’s edition is expected to attract a greater number of international kite-flyers, according to The Peninsula.
13 of Qatar’s government and private schools will also actively participate in the festival’s activities tailored for schools. According to Gulf Times, hundreds of children are set to get involved in the respective happenings, workshops, and site visits.
Holding on to the past years’ traditions, this year will also see a poster competition and a social media photography competition to stimulate creativity amongst the youth.
