Isla Blanca Kite Festival was held on the 27,28 February.  This year was the best festival yet!

Jim Martin who is a  world renowned single line kite flyer, visited us here in Cancun for the first time. The winds were fantastic and he was able to fly some really big kites! Penny Lingenfelter supported us by coming and flying her four line Revolution kite. The kids enjoyed the Peter Pan and Mario skits. We were also blessed with the company of Bethany and Andy Wilson, kite flyers from Utah.  Roberto Reyes and Cira Caballero, kite makers and flyers from Cancun flew their own kites and also did the piñata de papalotes on both Saturday and Sunday which the kids loved.

Here is the video on YouTube
