The local FOX t.v. channel, and a local Radio Station were 'Hosts'
of the Festival, along with Rakesh and the Kite Store, Come Fly A Kite.
Highest flying Kite - Fliers were given 30 seconds to let out
as much line as they could.
1st Place - Johnny Hsiung flying one of his own silver mylar
2nd place went to one of Rakesh's nephews(?) who was flying
an Indian fighter too.
Here's Charlie being interviewd
during a "Live" broadcast by one the Radio DJ's.
Food and Toy booths are in the background. There was an Indian food
booth which sold tempting curries, naan, samosas, sweets, etc., and another
booth that sold pizza and soft drinks. A Coffee booth, and a 'Blenders'
fruit drinks booth were there too.
The kids were separated into age groups, beginning with the two year
olds, and there were even one or two events for the "Older Kids" (the adults).
Even the Mayor of Santa Barbara got out there and almost grabbed the
tail at one point. What a good sport she was! Winners received
prizes donated by the Toy store who had a booth there.
