With bright sunshine and shorts-weather temperatures, Saturday May 28, 2016 was
too nice a day, not to take in the Strawberry Fields Kite Festival.
The Strawberry Fields Kite Festival has been happening each year during the last
full weekend in May at the old psych hospital at John Wise Road and Sunset Drive
in St. Thomas, Ontario. This Kite Festival attracts kite enthusiasts and spectators
from all over, and many of the tourists that come to Port Stanley.
Shapes, sizes, and colours of the kites vary each year, with some of them being
truly remarkable feats of engineering and others that can be quite tricky to get
them to fly. With bugs, butterflies, a Phoenix, a huge Whale with Calf, a giant
Octopus, Robots, and any number of other themes, this spectacle is a sight to delight
for the young at heart.
