It's not quite clear as to when kites were invented, but it is believed that they were developed in China and evidence suggests kites were used by cultures in Malaysia, Indonesia and the South Pacific as fishing instruments made using natural materials like leaves and reeds. The earliest written account of kite flying is in China in 200 BC, supporting China's claim to the origin of the kite. The Chinese General Han Hsin of the Han Dynasty flew a kite over the walls of a city he was attacking to measure how far his army would have to tunnel to reach past the defences.

By the late 13th century it had spread and reached European Explorer Marco Polo who describes it in his book of 1295. By the 14th and 15th century it had spread through Europe. Each time you hold a kite in your hand when you consider how far it has flown and travelled through the years, you can't help but marvel at its wonder and how something so simple has survived the passing years and survived to date, giving enjoyment and pleasure for all those who love the sport.

On Saturday 15 January 2022 from 12pm to 7pm The Kite Festival will be in full force at Casey Central Park, Narre Warren Cranbourne Rd, Narre Warren South. Kite flying is not all there will be. There'll also be music, dance, and kids entertainment with a variety of food at the event. It's open to everyone and has no entry fee. No outside kites and threads or outside food is permitted. Take note that no entry will be permitted without registration, so register now.

Love looking at kites. Takes me back to my childhood when I used to make kites and fly them on our nine acre market garden. Good clean fun, particularly when they actually flew.

When we were young Mum and Dad made kites for us. I remember us all going out to paddocks nearby and flying them, or at least trying to.
