On the third day of the event, which started Thursday in Niagara Falls State Park, all colors and shapes of kites filled the skies above Reservoir State Park.
At the other end of the kite string were other fliers.
Eli and Shula Shavit, who came from Jerusalem, have been traveling internationally to kite festivals since the mid-1980s.
Flying kites always has been a family activity, said Eli Shavit, whose daughter, Keren, lives in Buffalo. They try to make it to two international festivals a year, Eli Shavit said.
Like many Israeli youngsters, Shavit said he made kites as a child. He got involved again after buying a how-to book in Sacramento, Calif.
“The colors and shapes against the blue skies — there’s nothing better than this,” he said.

Here's a short article from the Buffalo Rising newspaper about it, featuring our Bols:
Once again, the kite fliers at LaSalle Park struck gold. The winds could not have been better (that's coming from a casual observer), and though the attendance was low (being a weekday and all), spirits and the kites were flying high. This year there were some crowd favorites that included two gigantic low flying circular color wheels, along with the infamous Berkeley Kite Wrangler 'Octopile'. The winds were blowing so well that the creatures danced across the sky while being chased by an oversized scuba diver, who in turn was being shadowed by a couple of small sharks. The sight was something to behold.

After the success of last years talk, we were invited, again, to give a presentation about our family's kite history and adventures.
The ad shows our "Twisted Flowers" Kite, our "American Bandanna" Delta Kite and the Genki Bird.
