There's a custom kite bag which holds the kites all connected together with a pocket for the lines. Ju...

Anyone going to this festival this weekend? It's a pretty big festival with mega kites, continuous demos with Chicago Fire, dual and quad demos with other folks too. Also has mega-kites, food vendors and a large crowd. I'll be there and I haven't really clicked with the demo crowd. Partly shyness o...
