Flying a kite on a windy day is great fun! If there’s a breeze in the air it’s time to head for a big open space. Or in this case, Fethiye’s main square, Beşkaza, where a Kite Festival was held on Friday 10th June.

The weather was just right; sunny with a nice sea breeze, perfect for making the kites dance and soar!

Kite flying is much easier with two people; one to hold the kite and one to RUN!!
