May 8, 2013 —
Winston Churchill once famously said, “Kites ride highest against the wind, not with it.” And so, at any given time, there were dozens of kites rising against the wind on May 4, at the 22nd Annual SUNY Sullivan Kite Festival on the great lawn.
There were panda kites, snake kites, kids with kites and dads with kites. Hundreds of people turned out to the event that provided nearly perfect kite-flying weather.
The kites bobbed and weaved, soared and dipped and from a distance looked like a kind of puppet show in the sky. For a look at a video from the day, visit the multi-media page on www.riverreporter.com .
