International kite festival comes to Ecopark
Update: Apr 27, 2016
Kites of all shapes, sizes and colours will fill the skies over Ecopark in Ha Noi this coming April 30-May 3, as the first-ever international kite festival of the suburban township takes flight.

The festival is expected to attract 600 people from professional and amateur kite fliers to vendors and spectators, say the organizers, coming from the five foreign countries of Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.

One of the top kite flyers in the world, Lam Gia Hoac, a Vietnamese national currently living in Canada, will also be on hand, they said. Scheduled events include demonstrations, kite battles, kite-making competitions, mass ascensions and fireworks.
