Kite enthusiasts will be converging today at Paseo del Mar for the annual kite-flying tilt hosted by the City Government for the 2015 Summer Festival.

The Kite Festival will kick-off at 9AM at the Paseo del Mar with participants vying for the top spots in the two competition categories, the Flat and Figure categories.

The flat kite is defined as a 2D or two-faced kite in any shape while the figure kite is a kite built as a 3D figure with realistic shapes.

Kites will be adjudged for their functionality as well as creativity. Special awards will also be given for the Bulador Del Pueblo, the Chiquiting Bulador, and the Jumbo Bulador.

The Kite Flying event will also feature the special participation of the Zamboanga Cosplay Group who will be joining the festivities for an open photo shoot with participants and spectators.

The Kite-Flying Competition is part of the summer festival activities lined up for the month of May as part of the City Government’s thrust to provide wholesome and fun entertainment to Zamboangueño families for the summer months.
