Frejus in Provence, welcome every year a Festival of the Air, on a very windy ground of the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
This festival sees rising in the sky kites and balloons.

During an autumn weekend, about fifty groups while resulting from about ten countries which demonstrate their talents both at the level of the design of the machines and the figures skilfully developed in the wind.

You will find on this page some characteristic photos of this demonstration
(see, in French, the first two series on the festival).
For the whole report, you can go on the slide show, (see at the end of page).

Definition of the term Kite, in the dictionary of Furetiere of 1690
Kite : child's toy is which they make with the wicker and the paper, which they attach to a rope, and which they fly in the air.

 

See the article of Wikipedia, very complete on the subject
