Foreigners from 15 countries living in Nantong, Jiangsu province, took part in a recent kite festival.
The event was organized by Nantong People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries. The participants attended a kite-making workshop before making their own.
Nantong is famous for its banyao kite, which dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Organizers hope the event will also promote local folk culture to foreigners.
