A lack of windy weather for the Washington State International Kite Festival may have temporarily grounded some of the larger displays, but the air was still filled with smaller kites this week. And, much to the crowd’s amusement, some kites were fighting each other in a “rokkaku” battle in a cordoned-off area. While it’s all in good fun, the last kite flying is certain to be target No. 1 at next year’s festival.
