Kites Over Branch County 2008

Long streaming kites over the soccer fields
Driving by the Creal Soccer Fields in the north part of town, one couldn't help but notice all the kites in the air. It was a beautiful day with a light breeze - perfect for kite flying. These pictures were taken on Saturday, July 26, the second day of the three day event.

The shark kite
Right by State Street flew a huge shark kite. Interestingly, it was tethered to the ground while being monitored nearby.
