|Parafoil lifter kite briefly in the air|
As an “eye-catcher” Steve, Sue, Wendy and myself put together a wind garden of spinners, wind socks and flags which worked quite well.

The Cherry Festival itself was well attended and had a number of interesting stands and events on top of the KKF Teddy Parachuting; Archery, Classic Cars, a working Blacksmith, various food stands, a Cherry Pie eating contest, Fresh Fruit tasting were just a few.

I could not resist the picture of the Blacksmith hammering away with the Facepainting banner. Towards mid afternoon as the storms approached the wind freshened for a while and Teddy Bear parachuting started to take place, this lasted until worsening weather made having a lifter kite up a little dangerous to health.
Overall though a nice day despite minimal wind. A few other kites were put in the air, sometimes briefly, from a large Rokkaku to a mini dragonfly kite.
