华盛顿州的国际风筝节
地方性遗产

放风筝不但是一件有趣的活动,风筝本身也是一件值得观赏的美丽作品。

世上有许多不同种类的风筝,有些风筝的复杂程度远远超过其他的风筝。菱形风筝是最简单的一种。只要一个平坦的表面将两根杆子交叉,用绳索绑牢交接处,再加上一个维持平稳的尾巴,它就可以利用合宜的风量,稳稳的在天空飞翔了。

回顾历史,风筝曾被应用在各式各样的用途上,包括传送消息、抓鱼、进行敌军检测行动、测量天气及发送电讯,而现在的风筝则多为娱乐用。

每年八月,华盛顿州的国际风筝节会在长滩半岛(Long Beach Peninsula)上,华盛顿的西南角落举办。节庆中有许多教人如何制作、装饰及放风筝的工作坊,另外,也有为小孩、成人及老人举办的竞赛。在节庆的最后一天,大家都受邀在同一时间放风筝,藉以营造一个鲜艳、美丽的景观!

假如您要放风筝,确定您身处一个无障碍的开放空间,远离道路、树木、电源线及机场。而且千万不要在下雨或暴风中放风筝!现在赶快踏出户外放风筝吧!


Not only is a kite fun to fly, but it is also beautiful to watch.

There are many different kinds of kites -- some much more complex than others. One of the simplest kinds is the diamond kite. It has a flat surface formed by two sticks tied into a cross and a tail that helps keep it stable. It flies nicely in light to medium winds.

Throughout history kites have been used for many different purposes, including to deliver messages, catch fish, spy on enemies, measure the weather and send radio signals. Today, kites are mostly flown for pleasure.

Every August, the Washington State International Kite Festival takes place in the southwest corner of Washington on the Long Beach Peninsula. There are workshops that teach people how to build, decorate and fly kites. There are also competitions for kids, adults and seniors. On the last day of the festival, everyone is welcome to fly a kite at the same time, creating a colorful, beautiful sight!

If you fly a kite, make sure you have clear, wide open spaces away from roads, trees, power lines and airports. And never fly in rain or storms. So go out and fly a kite!
