FESTIVAL IN THE SKY
2001 / JULY

The sky was filled with colourful kites flown by thousands of children at the Second International Dalin Kite Festival held at Hezarfen Airport under the slogan 'Kites Mean Freedom'.

Two groups of children from Germany and the Netherlands brought three-dimensional 30 metre long kites decorated with cartoon film and Sesame Street characters which delighted both children and the adults who relived their childhood for the day. As well as kite flying the festival featured a musical show, animations, and an exciting display of acrobatic flying by a single propellor aircraft.


The employees of Dalin, the company which organised the kite festival, presented wheelchairs to the Turkish Society for the Disabled for the use of children.
