Remember the joy of flying your first kite? The anticipation as it lifted into the air? The spark of magic as you discovered you could actually play with the wind? Well, you can experience it all again at one of Australia’s premier kite events - The Rosebud Kite Festival.
On Sunday, March 11, both the young and young at heart will come together to celebrate the art of kite flying. Visitors can make and fly their own kites courtesy of Kites 4 Kids. And alongside the novice kite flying arena will be the latest designs and displays from a team of internationally acclaimed kite flying professionals with their super-size maxi kite creations. You’ll be mesmerised by a flotilla of whales, spacemen, red and green dragons, and all manner of creatures from the deep. There’ll also be a display of Australian-themed delta kites, animated designer kites and the extremely agile sport kites.
A jam-packed festival program from 11am-5pm includes live entertainment on the main stage, hosted by the fabulous Frederico Boogie, as well as kids’ rides and a carnival, live bands, circus workshops, wildlife encounters and much more.
There are plenty of food stalls onsite, but you’re advised to bring a rug or folding chair and be prepared to stay a few hours because you won’t be able to tear yourself away from all the activity.
