Participating in the #WFGKC doesn't mean you HAVE TO FLY A KITE. Just do something Kite related. Our friends over at World's Greatest Kiting were part of an art gallery show back in 2016. A gallery show dedicated to kite art, and kites AS art. Why not set something like this up in your town? We would love to help!!!!! We can get you help, support, resources.. anything you need... Let's make it happen!!
