Kite Flying at the Garrison Savannah
Tue, April 17, 2001
Kite flying is a traditional Easter pastime in Barbados. Easter Monday is usually the big day for kite flyers because of the annual competition. Unfortunately this year there wasn't a sponsored competition, but that didn't stop people from turning out in their numbers.

It was a pleasure to see parents interacting and having fun with their children. Children of all ages had a chance to show off their kite flying skill. For some it was their first kite. Three-year-old Allon flew his kite with his father Elon. With other children playing all around, his father did have a tough time keeping him interested in the kite, but they certainly had fun.

Ester Monday at the Garrison Savannah is a showcase of Barbadian's kite making ability. Kites of all descriptions can be seen. From the smallest to the largest and the unusual. These on the right were on sale at the Kite Corner.
