The dragon shaped kite, the world's longest, kicked off the International Kite Flying Festival on Saturday. The 2015 Wulong International Kite Flying Festival attracted kite flyers from 13 countries and regions. The dragon-shaped wonder was made up of 2,000 pieces, each printed with the characters "Chinese Dream". It took six to eight hours to release the entire kite into the sky. The record-breaking kite is longer than the current longest kite Guinness World Record holder, which is 5,000-meters-long.
