Historically Maaori used Kites as a communication tool. Symbolically, Kites reaching up to the stars spiritually connecting heaven and earth.
The Friends host a FREE Kite Day for children to encourage families and the community to connect. We have held this community event under the Matariki Ki Waikato Winter Festival korowai since 2017.
Every year our event has grown larger as more families join in the celebration of Matariki Kite making and flying. We have had up to 1000 visitors take part in this event, some traveling from as far as Auckland and Wellington.
