Yesterday, I decided to enjoy the beautiful 79 degree winter weather at the Dubai International Kite Festival in Jumeirah.
I was like a kid in a kite store! (Yes, I know that’s not a ‘thing’ but just know that I was excited and having fun).
The Dubai Kite International Festival in its 2nd year, is an action packed family event that hosts some of the world’s best and finest kite flying teams, coming from over 25 countries. This is not you in the park with your $3 Walmart kite your mom bought you to shut you up. No, these are world star kite experts in their respective fields of: synchronized kite flying, kite surfing, kite buggying, kiteboarding, sports kite flying, and illuminated night kite flying. Cool Right? Yeah, I thought so too!
There were tons of family activities and things for kids, but since I’m sans-infant, i decided to grab a corn dog, lemonade and some ice cream and have at it on the beach watching the small kiddies enjoy the madness. That alone bought me joy.
I happened to catch the last day of the festival, but in case you’re an undercover kite aficionado like myself, be sure to check it out next year!
