Kite flyers from around the world will converge in Dubai next month to participate in the Dubai International Kite Fest (DIKF), as a part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), which runs from 1 January to 1 February 2015.

The 20th edition of DSF, which is organised by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), has a range of world-class events and activities, and the kite-flying is one of several attractions that focuses on offering family fun across the city.

The three- day DSF kite fest from 29 – 31 January 2015, will be held at the beach in Jumeirah 3 (behind Sunset Mall) featuring some of the world's finest kite flying teams from 25 countries , governed and approved by the International Kite Flying Association (USA), according to the organisers Classic Concepts, an event management company.

Organisers will also attempt to break a Guinness World Record with the help of over 15,000 participants who will be flying kites simultaneously at 15 or more locations across Dubai, offering a golden opportunity for kite-flying enthusiasts to be a part of this record-breaking feat.

Dubai International Kite Fest will also see the launch of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative – "Green Dubai – Clean Dubai", as part of efforts to raise awareness about environmental conservation. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
