Cape Town International Kite Festival
From: Saturday, October 20 2007, 8:00 am
to: Sunday, October 21 2007, 11:00 am
Making the most of the mighty south-easter, Cape Town's annual International Kite Festival presents spectacular shows by local and international teams, including Japan, the USA, India, Malaysia and China.
From the wild, deserted beaches of the Cape West Coast to Bloubergstrand (the original kiting hotspot) and the broad open space further east near Hermanus, the area is ideal for every kind of kiting, including kite surfing, sand-skiing and three-wheeled buggy races. Live entertainment, kite-making workshops and an exhibition on the health of the mind, the latter capturing the essence of what kite flying evokes, complement this year's programme.
