Man flying kite goes for a ride

In advance of the Kite Fest next weekend FOX19 went to West Chester to watch some kite fans launching their exotic craft.

The wind was so strong while we were there, one man was dragged around the field a bit.  He dived for the ground and hung on until some fellow flyers could secure the kite.

The West Chester Kite Fest runs Noon to 5 p.m. next Saturday and Sunday in Voice of America Park off Tylersville Road east of I-75.
