Despite the wet and cold weather, it is kite flying season in New England. But, would a little rain stop hardy New Englanders? No, the rain and brisk temperature didn’t deter these true kite flying aficionados.
KONE (Kites Over New England) hosted the event at Cogswell’s Grant in Essex, MA and there were kites of all types flying through the air. Kites in the shape of pirate ships or with Batman and Frozen (a particularly appropriate kite for that day) figures on them are a few of the types of kites that soared through the air.
Some unlucky kite flyers got their kites stuck in the trees. But, the helpful staff at Cogswell’s helped untangle them.
Kite flyers of all ages enjoyed their time at Cogswell’s Grant.
Some of the visitors had more fun popping the bubbles being made by the bubble man.
Tessa, a 7 year old all white German Shepherd, was more interested fetching her stick.
KONE hosts several “kite days” in New England throughout the year and I hope to attend a kite day later when the weather is better!
