Berck Kite Festival 

Berck sur Mer, France is the site for Europe's largest kite festival. Held during April each year, it attracts kite flyers from around the world and is free to spectators. The flat sandy beach at Berck sur Mer is notably long, running into Le Touquet, the home of sand yachting or kite buggies, but the event attracts huge crowds and the sky is filled with kites of all shapes and sizes. There are demonstrations, contests, exhibitions and kite flying classes.

This year's event has been running since 5 April and finishes on Suday, so there is still time for many Europeans to get along this weekend. Berck sur Mer is just south of Boulogne sur Mer.

More information is available from the official web site but it only seems to be available in French.
