11:00 AM Chunfen Kite Making Workshop Let's create your spring kite! Flying a kite is a traditional folk custom on Chunfen. For centuries, whenever Chunfen approaches, kids will fly kites to welcome the coming of spring. Adults will also join in the activity on the day. Yet the kites supplied on the market are often very small and suitable for kids. So if adults want to have a try, they will make a big one by themselves. Well, then, a contest about whose kite flies higher is just around the corner.
