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.
