Still winds at the 2023 fall kite festival

Sad kite waits for a gust of wind

While crowds begin to gather at the D River Wayside, semi depressed kites are waiting on the sandy ground like puppies waiting for the kids to come home.  Heads bob and tails wag but without the requisite wind they sit and hope.

Some kites were able to launch despite the lack of strong wind

Lighter, more traditional, kites were airborne needing nothing more than a breath of wind to get aloft.

Viewer reserving energy for the launch of the kite festival

Alas, even some in the viewing gallery weren’t able to muster the energy to rise yet.

Festival volunteer eagerly awaiting guests

The table is set, the volunteers are cheerfully assisting people, the vendors are readying their booths and all are praying that the expected rain won’t be too heavy.
