the 2018 Austin Kite festival recap


Well, this year was the second year that we have attended the annual kite festival in Austin, Texas. It is the largest of its kind in the nation. This would have been our third time to attend, but last year rained out and in turn got canceled. Although it did sprinkle on and off at today’s event, it didn’t keep people from sticking it out and having a good time.


The lady friend even managed to snag a trophy for second place in the “most unusual kite” competition. In my personal, all be it biased opinion, the one that came in first place was cool, but not really all that “unusual“. Regardless, we had a lot of fun and the lady friend came away with second place in her home made custom kite competition.

Not bad for a first time competer if you ask me.


We are already looking forward to next year. I’m sure her kite making skills will only get all the more “unusual“.


Make a kite from scratch they said…


Now, obviously these photos are not at all doing it justice… but, the lady friend started making a kite from scratch the other day. And well, it got off the ground. It’s of a guy with a frowny face that has a rainbow over his head. Hopefully I will post some better photos of it in action at the Austin Kite Festival This next weekend!
