Let’s go fly a kite

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 12, both the young and the young at heart will come together to celebrate the art of kite flying.  Visitors can make and fly their own kite 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-sized maxi kite creations. Crowds will be mesmerised by a flotilla of whales, spacemen, dragons and all manner of creatures from the deep. There will also be a display of Australian-themed delta kites, animated designer kites and the extremely agile sport kites.

With a jam-packed festival program, the fun line-up of live entertainment on the main stage from 11am-5pm will be hosted by the fabulous Frederico Boogie.  There will also be kids’ rides, a carnival, roving entertainers, circus workshops, wildlife encounters and much, much more.

There are plenty of food stalls throughout the site, but you are 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.

A: Foreshore, Jetty Rd, Rosebud

When: Saturday, March 11 (meet the kite-makers; 10am-1pm) and Sunday, March 12 (the main event, with kite flying, stalls, carnival, live entertainment; 11am-5pm)
