The Nelson Summer Kite Festival is an amazing annual event held in Neale Park, Nelson. This year it was held on Saturday and Sunday 21st & 22nd of January attracting kite fliers from all over NZ, local kite fliers and many spectators.

The Nelson Kite Club is behind this spectacle for all to enjoy.

The New Zealand kite fliers association is behind them helping to hold regional flying days throughout the country. 

The association publish a magazine every four months called "What's Up" to help maintain communication among their members. If you are keen on becoming a member or for further information contact the Local Rep in your area. The link to the association is:
