Two men is running flying kites in Bali

The Bali Kite Festival is an absolute blast! It’s a vibrant celebration of the Balinese people’s love for flying kites and their deep respect for Hindu gods. Held near Sanur, on the beach close to Denpasar, this festival attracts people from all over Indonesia and beyond. The event’s highlight is the flying of so many big kites created and assembled from Bali. These kites are no joke, my friends. Some of them are as long as 10×4 metres, with tails reaching up to a whopping 150 metres! Can you even imagine? They stand out like majestic creatures soaring through the sky.

And let me tell you, these kites are not just your ordinary kites. They are adorned with the most beautiful designs of fish, birds, and plants. It’s like a work of art up there in the sky. Each group representing different towns flies their unique kite, making it a spectacular sight to behold.

But wait, there’s more! Exciting awards are given for the best start, best look, and longest time in the air. It’s a competition that these kite-flyers take very seriously. You will encounter an atmosphere filled with cheers and applause as the kites battle it out in the sky.

So, if you’re up for some fun and excitement, make sure to join in the Bali Kite Festival. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave you in awe. Whether you’re a kite enthusiast or just looking for a good time, this festival is worth a visit. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed if you choose to join in the fun next year!
