Friday 18th of august

I took a day off from work, to get there in time. For me it was a 2h drive. When we arrived (after picking up a friend, 2h drive and eating some fries) we already saw a lot of kites in the air. But first thing first, we hadded some setting up to do: Tent, Kites, fridge.
After that, we had some test flight time

Day Kite-ing

Most of al it was a beautiful day, we only had 2 little rain showers.

 

One of the first thing i got into the air was my Koinobori fishes,
The crowd loved them,
i had to do the explanation about the meaning of the koinobori 7+ times

Time flies when you having fun, is an understatement. In no time it was 18 o clock.
time to prepare for kite flying

 

the first thing we did was eating, you can’t fly on an empty stomach,

 

 

Before we started there was a show of “Fenix Taiko” and “de Vlaggenzwaaiers”

After that it was time to get the secret weapon, i modified my koinobori especially for this. 350 led lights and 30 batteries that’s what i needed to get this work, and it did work
IMG_4669.jpgat the last tests we did with the 105 fishes, i discovered that 1 string didn’t work, so i removed it to lose some weight

when the night fell, it became time to perform, and like always…. Wind drops,
no wind no kite flying so they moved me to the back of the show an lucky me, the wind was back,
