HOLIDAYS OF SINGAPORE


Singapore Kite Festival


January 19:

Everyone who enters the kite competitions in the Singapore Kite Festival must make his own kite. The kites range from immense segmented dragons to ships with 19 sails. Judges score competitors' kites on both artistic design and flying performance. Team competitors are judged for kite design, the speed with which they launch and retrieve their kite, and the team's accuracy in touching an air-borne target with its kite.
