Hermann Park Kite Festival

Giant Fish Kite

Giant Fish Kite

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

  5. 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.

  7. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. 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… ๐Ÿ˜‰

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