In Colombia, August is kite month on account of the strong winds. The sky in Villa de Leyva fills up with dots of thousands of colors that move in all directions.
Every year, during a weekend in August, wind and happiness arrive. The Wind and Kite Festival takes place on the beautiful colonial stage of Villa de Leyva. Participants not only have fun; they can also watch professional kite-flyers perform amazing demonstrations while competing in several categories.
