Drawing crowds in Dubai – easy!

 

Dubai International Kite Festival 2016 started with two prerequisites – a large, open flying space with continuous and steady onshore winds.

Jumeirah Open Beach, Dubai, is a dedicated kiters’ beach with backdrop scenery to drool over.  A perfect reason for organisers, Classic Concepts, to pitch the 2nd Annual Kite Festival here.

Black is such a COOL colour!

 

 

Winds remained perfect every day; kiters could loft and tether their displays without fear of tangling.

 

Feathering

Australia photobombs!!

 

 

The steady winds meant that, for this 3-day festival, families were able to enjoy 12 hours’ constant enjoyment, every single day.

Kite flyers from New Zealand, USA, UK, India, Malaysia, France, Russia, Colombia, Netherlands, Switzerland AND Australia (Linda & Kevin Sanders, OzFeathers Pty. Ltd.) worked non-stop to guarantee a full Dubai sky.

A vast array of kites featured a wide collection of creatures (dog, whale, dragon, cow, fish, crabs & more), an aeroplane, a submarine, a genie plus a mammoth, spinning spiked bol, while kite teams further along the beach performed choreographed routines to music.

On Day 3, Linda’s display of her 15-set Feather Banners Mural (Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock) gave many families the ideal photo opportunity.
