Kite Festival 2 - Kite Details

There were probably about 50 giant kites on display. Each was very unique with an incredible amount of detail. The colors and patterns come from small pieces of tissue paper. The frames were typically made of bamboo. 

Each kite had a specific message. Some were environmental, others human rights, and others political. 

(Pride in indigenous culture)

(The riches of our beloved Guatemala)


They were very beautiful from far away, but even more beautiful close up.
