Hermann Park Kite Festival

Giant Fish Kite

Giant Fish Kite

This inaugural kite festival was held in conjunction with Hermann Park’s centennial.  The giant fish kite does not fly well on its own, so it was assisted by the more efficient rainbow colored kite behind it.

  6. I was hoping for some pictures from you of this. Friends were talking about it on Facebook and I am sorry not to have been able to go. As usual, you have taken beautiful pictures of life in Houston. Thank you.

  8. Thank you for liking “Patterns.” I enjoyed looking at kites. I used to fly them when I was a child. One time I flew a large kite that my dad made for me and my brothers, and for a moment I thought it might carry me away when it was high up in the air! Thanks for sharing these fun photos. :)

  11. Utterly delightful….those kites are magic.

  12. All of the different kites are so fun to watch!
    I saw a cherry tree in Washington DC that had “eaten” 4 kites (captured in branches).
    So, kites must taste good too… ;)

    • This was the first time, which probably explains why you did not know there was one.
