Kite artisans show talents at festival in Nam Dinh

NDO – The first national kite festival was held in the northern province of Nam Dinh on July 5, attracting the participation of nearly 60 kite clubs from 40 cities and provinces nationwide.

The kite artisans competed in two categories of kite design and kite making, with Song An team from Thai Binh Province claiming the top position in both categories.
 
The participants also had a chance to show off their talents and skills in the traditional craft while sharing experience with each other.
 
The festival is the starting event of upcoming kite festivals and competitions which will be held annually in cities and provinces nationwide.
 
Regarding Nam Dinh Province in particular, the festival is among a series of activities being hosted by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism to stimulate the local tourism sector after COVID-19.
 
It also seeks to preserve flute kite playing, a folk game which has recently been recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage, while creating a new tourist product to entertain visitors.
