SHIPSHEWANA - A perfect day for flying kites helped to make the annual Kite Komotion Festival and Clinic in Shipshewana a success Saturday.
Gary Maynard of the professional kite flying team The Windjammers said it was a perfect day. "No rain and/or snow...and as long as you have a nice breeze, anywhere from say 8 to 15 miles per hour is excellent for us cause we fly the multiple kites - the big trains - and we need just a little bit more wind than your average."
500 children built their own kites before the kits ran out.
The festival is sponsored by the LaGrange Communities Youth Centers and Head Over Heels in Shipshewana.
