Let’s go fly a kite, it’s a great day

By Nadia Ali. Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height,

Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring,

Up through the atmosphere, up where the air is clear,

Oh let’s go fly a kite.

Those are the lyrics to a song from the famous “Mary Poppins” film. It’s one that relates to the happiness of flying a kite watching it soar into the sky. Fortunately, it is something that is encouraged every year in the 90.5 Annual National Easter Kite Flying Contest held by at the Queen’s Park Savannah.

It is definitely a great day out for the whole family with freebies, food and freedom to watch entertainers and not forgetting, to fly a kite!

There are numerous categories to take part in each with a prize. The best category in my opinion is definitely the “Mad Bull” entries. These are the larger than large kites that arrive on the back of a truck waiting to be assembled and flown by a team – like five or more people to get this monster kite in the air.

In 2014, at the far corner of the entrants area a six-man team hooked up their Mad Bull to a pickup to try to get the kite off the ground. It was an amazing task to see as the kite slowly lifted upright and scarped across the dusty ground of the Savannah leaving the team in a dust trail. But alas, it didn’t get off the ground for long before literally crashing down on its corners.

Children with small kites were scattered on the Savannah accompanied by parents. The crowds hung around the main area in front of the entertainers’ stage where there were sponsors giving out free stuff.

Of course, I went with my kite in hand ready to see it soar “up through the atmosphere, up where the air is clear”. It started off well whipping its way up and up but as soon as I began to release the kite string at a pace it began to dip and dive, down, down down plummeting to the Savannah ground far away.

So, I collected it and sat to simply admire those kites that created a rainbow of colour in the sky and the joy on the faces of the persons flying them with pride.

Oh let’s go fly a kite!
