Whether you’re four years old or 80 years old, anyone can fly a kite.

SkyFest brings in kite fliers from all over to show off their flying skills. Tom White, international kite flier, jokes that people fly kites until they’re eight and don’t pick it back up until they’re 40. He says he loves attending these festivals to see what other people have collected and talking to other kite enthusiasts.

Even on calmer days, like today, he says you can still fly a kite — you just have to keep moving.

“Winds can be high, or they can be low. And I have stuff that can fly for 1mph wind to 50mph winds. But you shouldn’t actually be outdoors when it’s 50mph winds, but yeah, I’m a dedicated flyer and I’ll be out with some stuff in that high wind,” says Tom White, International Kite Flier.

You can still catch the kites tomorrow and Monday at Fort Stevenson.
