Kites to take off in sea of colour
Hundreds of kites will fill the sky above Rockingham foreshore on Saturday as part of the City’s first Kite Festival.
Held as part of the City’s Summer Series, the Kite Festival will give people the chance to experience a sea of colour as kites of all shapes and sizes fly above the foreshore.
Kites featuring penguins, pelicans, koalas, whales and sharks will all take flight during the festival. The event will include a variety of stage entertainment acts during the day, including acoustic artists, a drumming performance, a Mauritius Sega dance performance and a Bumble Bee Ballet and Boogie Bus. Kite- making workshops will be held from 10am until 2pm and children under the age of 12 will have the chance to enter a competition to win a prize for the best decorated kite.
The event will also feature a giant maze for people of all ages to enjoy.
Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged the community to get involved in the City’s Kite Festival.
“The City of Rockingham Kite Festival will decorate the foreshore skyline with a variety of wonderful shapes and colours,” he said.
“Those who participate in the kite making workshop will be able to show off their creative skills by flying their kites together.
“With so many kites flying high at the same time it is sure to be a stunning sight to see.”
The City of Rockingham Kite Festival will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, November 30.
