If you’ve ever spent any time on the prairies, you know this already. Its often windy. Really windy!
Some have even taken up kite boarding, an impressive way to snowboard or ski using the wind instead of going down hills. There is a group that does this near Regina, and it is amazing to see the wind harnessed this way.
Of course, most aren’t up for this extreme, but anyone can fly a kite! This is a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon, and can be quite the challenge with two string trick kites.
There is also the annual Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current, taking place on June 21st and 22nd. This is a great event designed for the whole family, with kids activities, entertainment, and expert kite flyers.
The great thing about kite flying is that you can enjoy it anywhere, and space is abundant on the prairies!
