Atlantic Kite Festival Society was established in 2017 when it separated from its sister organization Indian Festivals Club of Nova Scotia (IFCNS). The goal of Atlantic Kite Festival Society is to encourage participants to “Fly as High as You Can”. This saying can be applied to the kite flying situation against wind and rain. However, the saying can also be applied to real life situations where we come across obstacles that we have to navigate through.
The symbolism and traditional folklore behind kite flying is different from one culture to the next and is based on the history of that culture. Atlantic Kite Festival society aims to highlight the kite flying commonality among these cultures.
