Kenya: Kites for Peace At the Ngong Racecourse

The second edition of the Kenya Kite Festival themed "Kites for Peace" was held last Sunday afternoon with many families in attendance at Nairobi Ngong Racecourse.

Kiting is a high energy, family event that originated from China and has spread across the world attracting kite flyers and kite enthusiasts from every corner for a day of kites and family fun.

In a festival original handmade art kites, giant creature kites, kites trains, fighter kites, stunt kites and kite buggies fill the air over an open field. At the Ngong Racecourse parents and their children had a fun day interacting and playing with kites spreading love and peace messages ahead of the March 4 general election.

According to the organiser, Melissa Muraya from Urban Live Entertainment, this year's event had a bigger turnout than last year's. "Our approach is always to let our guests come and have fun as they share peace messages through bonding and flying kites," said Muraya.
