Held on Xiamen's golden beaches, the kite festival is an important part of the Xiamen International Ocean Week, which takes place from Nov 3 to 9.

His team has choreographed a set of ballet moves involving four kites weaving and dancing in the sky in time to music.
The kite festival is sponsored by Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Sports, Xiamen Daily and people's government of Siming district, aimed at integrating the nationwide fitness and Xiamen ocean culture exhibits with stunt kite shows and kite flying.
On the domestic level, stunt kite teams representing Northern and Southern China will compete against one another, complementing the international competition.
A parent-child activity will also be organized, during which parents and children can fly their own kites.
