As Trigger said, it was a great day. Really nice to see him and fellow IKE member CADguy (who did a lovely solo routine with a stack of Revs). Air Mania did a nice job demonstrating four-kite team Rev flying. A dozen or so Wisconsin Kiters came in with a wide variety of cool SLKs. Master kite-makers Simon Crafts and Adrian Conn displayed their unique creations. The HKS kite-making workshop helped 440 kids make their own sled kites. Other kite ballet performers included Dan Newman, Mark Ledvina, Fire & Ice, Blues Brothers, Dave "Mr. Incredible" Bush, and Windjammers.

One of the kite fliers even referred to the festival as a "mini Grand Haven!"

Festival organizers Head over Heels, LLC (the local outdoor and kite store) and Lagrange County Youth Center were beside themselves with happiness over the festival's success.

South Bend TV station ABC 57 did a nice package on the festival:

A photo gallery from the Shipshewana festival is now up on the HKS website. It has about 60 shots in it so far and we're adding more every day. Here's one of my favorites:

I would have loved to have met Simon. His stuff is great.
