DOHA: The Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) will host the Third Aspire International Kite Festival at the Aspire Park from March 6-9.
The festival will turn the blue skies into a 3-D artistic platform and will feature more than 80 international kiters this year.
With their fabulous designs, the participants will be competing in four award categories -- Best Design and Innovation Award, The Biggest Kite Award, the Longest Kite Award and the Best National Flag Award.
Teams from China, France, Pakistan, and Mexico won each of these award categories last year and 2019’s edition is expected to attract even more international competitors.
This year the festival will also feature more than 13 government and private schools competing in their annual schools competition, with hundreds of children also taking part in the festival’s lively activities, workshops and site visits.
Last year, Oscar Academy, Muaz Bin Jabal Independent School for Boys and Halima Al-Saadeia Independent School for Girls were the winners of the kite flying competitions.
Alongside the event, Aspire Park visitors flew an average of 1,000 kites a day, while kite sale points sold more than 10,000 kites in four days.
