Windfest 2011 - Toronto

If you remember from my last post - the Toronto Kite festival was relaunched as Windfest last year - Dave has taken the huge task of organizing a kite festival for the Toronto folks.

Yesterday wrapped up the 2nd annual Windfest out at the Toronto beaches. It was a perfect day - nice winds coming off the lake, full sun, blue skies with some clouds for some great photos. I flew my kite as part of the TKF group but there were kite flyers from clubs all over Ontario as well as the Windjammers from the USA.

Always a fav with the kids - the Teddy bear drop - although there were some technical difficulties.

The Candy drop became a Candy throw due to issues with the lifter, but the kids still loved it.

The Windjammers put on a great show for the crowds all day long.
