This year’s festival theme is “Colors in the Sky.” Kite lovers came out to show off their kites and skills, many looking to bring home the coveted “Best Kite” award.

Kite experts were also on hand Saturday to teach beginners the basics, including equipment safety and how to land a kite.

If you’d like to see the kites, you’ll have another chance on Sunday. The festival continues at Portsmouth City Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
