In the United States, kite flying is generally a leisurely family pastime. One of the most famous kiting events in the nation takes place each spring in Washington, DC, the Blossom Kite Festival (formerly known as the Smithsonian Kite Festival).

Throughout Asia, kite flying can be a serious contest known as kite fighting, a sport in which opponents attempt to bring down the other’s kite through a variety of means.
