The International Kite Festival, taking place from June 8-10, is part of the Quang Nam Heritage Festival 2017.

They are the art works of nearly 100 international and domestic craftsmen from Canada, Japan, Thailand, the Republic of Korea, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and New Zealand.

The kites, with designs combining traditional and modern features, reflect the artists’ creativity and skills, while sending messages of integration and exchanges among communities.

Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ho Tan Cuong, who is head of the event’s organising board, said viewers can contemplate hundreds of kites of all shapes and sizes along with enjoying art performances.

The event is expected to bring viewers back to their childhood while contributing to the enhancement of friendship and cultural exchanges among nations and their people.
