Noumea Festival of the Wind with Giant Kites
Nouméa

Giant sea creature kites soar above the lagoon with comic book eyes looking down on the crowds of people, a hundred windsurf sails glit like swarms of triangular butterflys, while hundreds of happy children demonstrate their expert stunt-flying kites to the beat of funk music. This is the 2009 Festi'Vent in noumea.

There was just barely enough wind to lift the big sea creature kites made by kite designer Simon Chisnall in New Zealand and not enough wind for the demonstration of kite surfing and flying wings. But the wind was just perfect for the small children flying their little kites nearby.

The kids and their parents had a wonderful time flying an estimated 500 kites on the day of the Festi'Vent. In the evening, just as the wind died to a perfect calm a fireworks show filled the skies.
