Weird and wonderful shapes over China’s Shandong Province, as thousands of kites took to the skies for the 31st International Kite Festival.

Teams from over 40 countries descended on the city of Weifang for the eight-day festival which saw around 10,000 people showing off their unusual designs.

Known as the kite capitol of the world, Weifang is considered to be the birthplace of kites with the festival being held there every year since 1984.
