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!

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
