Steve Batliner flies a dual-line stunt kite at the One Sky, One World kite flying event Sunday at Cosmo-Bethel Park. The event was part of an international kite flying celebration that takes place annually on the second Sunday of October. Batliner said that there are usually between 10 and 20 kite flyers and up to 100 spectators, but this year attendance was lower due to rain earlier in the day.
