This family festival is sponsored by the Ohio Society
For the Elevation of Kites (OSEK), a club that has
been “coloring up the sky” at community festivals,
and doing kite making workshops across northeast Ohio
for 40 years. It’s been called the best kept secret in
Cleveland by some, but kite people from several states
and Canada call it one of the best kite festivals in the USA!
Need a kite? No problem. OSEK will be selling kid kites
For $3 at the club tent, and Chicago Kite Store will be
bringing its field shop to Edgewater again this year.
Events include performances by the Windjammers
International Kite Team based in Detroit, dancing stacks of
kites to music everybody loves.
Wind Sprint contests are for everybody, and conducted
by age group. Parents can help smaller children.
Mystery Ballet is a favorite among experienced sport kite fliers.
This event needs 5 people each day from “the public” to judge
how they like each contestant’s performance.
Rokkaku Battles end each day. Large Japanese style fighting kites
get points for knocking each other out of the sky. No cutting line
is used for this kind of fighting kites.
