We flew to Italy to participate in two kite festivals at the beaches of the northern Adriatic shores. Kite friends from all over the world attended with perfect winds, warm sunny days and lots and lots of flying colors. The 28th annual Cervia International Kite festival is one of the longest running kite festivals in Europe. The festival ran for ten days, two weekends and powered by pasta and vino. We then went to another smaller festival in the beach town of Rosolina Mare near Venice to get more sun, wind and kites into the air. We love Italy!
