Some 120 enthusiasts from 25 nations and territories have registered to participate in an international kite festival in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province from April 8-10.

The enthusiasts will bring over 300 kites in different sizes, shapes and materials, featuring designs from many traditional cultures.

Organisers from Intourco and Paradise Beach Resorts said that many colourful international figures will also participate, showcasing their special products in the shape of birds and very small butterflies, which, with skilful handling, can fly as in real life.

Audiences will also be entertained with huge kites in different shapes, including toads, as long as 25 metres.

The event will culminate in a professional kite flying programme themed “Sharing a sky” for 120 minutes, following an amateur programme for visitors./.
