Being popular in many Indian cities, entire households and cities gather on their rooftops to fly kites and compete with each other. Apart from all other festival fun that includes special food and decorations, the city's skyline is decorated by colourful kites and makes a wonderful sight.

Shree Swaminarayan Temple in Sydney organizes this annual event at the Fairfield Showgrounds. This year on Sunday 8th January, make your own kites or buy kites at the festival grounds to participate. Sydney weather on Sunday should be a warm 31 degrees and will be great for a day of kite flying.

There is ample free parking at the grounds and the entry fee is a nominal $3 per head. Head there for some family fun, food stalls, ethnic stalls for jewellery, clothing and some fun for all ages.

It will be good to brush up on some kite flying skills before you get there if you intend to participate in the event. The event is scheduled from 9:30 AM to 4 PM on Sunday 8th January. Get there nice and early for some kite flying fun.
