Shakrain Festival (Bengali: সাকরাইন; also known as Kite festival) is celebrated in Dhaka, Bangladesh at the end of the Bangla month Poush (January 14 or 15 in Gregorian calendar). This day is known as Poush Sangkranti (Bengali: পৌষ সংক্রান্তি; End of Poush). It is celebrated mostly around the southern part of Dhaka city.
As part of the celebration, kites are flown high from the rooftops around the area in the afternoon. It often takes the form of kite fighting, in which participants try to snag each other’s kites or cut other kites down. When night falls, fireworks lit up the sky of old Dhaka. Flame-eaters also gather up on the roofs to entertain everyone with their skills of manipulating fire.
