Do's and Don'ts of Kite Flying

  • Never fly your kite near power lines
  • Don't fly noisy kites that disturb others.
  • If your kite gets caught in a power line, don't touch the line or the kite. Call OPPD and make sure nobody gets near the area until help arrives.
  • Never scare animale, especially horses with riders.
  • Never fly your kite in stormy weather. A kite can make you a very tall lightning rod.
  • Don't fly your kite near or over other people. Some fighting kites can reach speeds of 80 mph, so if they hit someone, a serious injury could result.
  • Never use metallic flying line
  • Don't fly your kite near trees, roads or vehicles.
  • Be mindful of others. Be especially aware of other people, coolers, chairs, and fences.
  • Don't overpower yourself with a kite too big for the wind conditions.
