The ever-popular Thailand International Kite Festival is set to take to the skies on March 23-25, 2018 at the Army Non Commissioned Officer School, Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Fancy Kite Show: This year, the event will see 20 kite-flying teams from around the world, including Switzerland, Germany and France. The displays of beautiful kites from all over the world will include giant kites in the shapes of super heroes and cartoon characters as well as in geometric forms. A stunning musical performance of revolution kites and a show of stunt kites with fliers who’ll compete to show off their high-speed flying skills will be a highlight.

Chula and Pak Pao show: A show of unique Thai kites which will be dancing in the sky, accompanied by a Thai classical music Pi Phat ensemble.

Kite Exhibition: The exhibit applies interactive multimedia technology in telling the story of Thai kites in an enjoyable way.

Kite Art Fun and DIY Activities: Try your hand at making, drawing and painting a kite at the Kite Kid Paint corner, create limited-edition art pieces at the Do It Yourself (DIY) section, or learn how to make a boomerang and how to throw it at the Boomerang Workshop.

Wind Garden: an activity to design a ground decorated with wind-playing arts like kites and materials that can be moved by wind, sound-producing pieces like turbines, mobiles, bells, etc., and see the professional wind garden decoration.

Family Fun Kite: an activity that provides an open area for kite flying families to enjoy themselves together.

Ringside Kite Tour: get to see kites in the kite-flying field, right up close to the kites and their world-class kite flyers.

Food Trucks and Music: a caravan of mobile food shops that offer signature dishes of Hua Hin. There are also utility items, ornaments, and local handicrafts for sale, as well as local community shops with light music and the relaxing ambience of Hua Hin.
