John and I visited the Brisbane Kite Festival this past Sunday because, well, it seemed like a cool thing to do. And also because I helped coordinate the festival through my work with the Rotary Club of Carindale. My main contribution was overhauling their website. Even after a few meetings pertaining to the festival, I didn’t quite know what to expect. When we walked up, there were kites surrounding us – from certain perspectives, you could look up to have kites dancing in your entire view. It was a family-friendly function, and so as we sat to people watch, most of what we watched was dads fighting to keep the kite in the air as the kids ran around giggling and/or chasing kites/shadows/other kids. Lots of cute little kids getting really excited about kites. Lots and lots and lots of kites. They also had professional kite fliers there; we didn’t get to see any of their trick demonstrations, but they did have some unusual ones – Finding Nemo being the most memorable. All in all, a pretty fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
