Weifang is the hometown of kite which enjoys a long history. Over 2,400 years ago, the first wood kite in the world was made and flied successfully by a skillful craftsman called Lu Ban in Weifang. In Ming and Qing dynasties, flying kites became popular in Weifang. Zheng Banqiao, by his poem named “Memories of Weixian”, reflected the scene of kite-flying in Weifang during the Qingming Festival: "Like snow flowers the paper kites flying in the sky, sweet girls flying on swings around and high. Colored skirts and ribbons flattering in wind, they skylarking the spring back with the Butterfly". After the founding of new China, the folk culture of Weifang kite has been further developed and promoted. In May 2006, Weifang kite making skills have been approved in the first National Intangible Cultural Heritage List by the State Council of China.
