'All about ability' is the theme for the eighteenth Cape Town International Kite Festival, which is proudly hosted by Cape Mental Health in association with Heart 104.9FM, and will take place in Muizenberg on 3 and 4 November 2012.
The annual Cape Town International Kite Festival attracts talented kite-makers and kite fliers from around the world. Festival-goers will see giant cartoon characters and other amazing kite creations take to the skies, as well as exciting stunt kiting and Rokakkau kite battles. Local kite-makers are invited to enter the Heritage Kite Award and school children can participate in the Edu-Kite Schools' Competition.
With kite-making workshops, non-stop kite-flying, craft and food stalls as well as kiddies' rides and a full programme of entertainment on the Coke Gig Rig, the festival offers fantastic outdoor family fun. The event is held in aid of a very good cause; all profits go towards providing much-needed mental health services to adults and children in poorly resourced communities in the Western Cape.
The Cape Town International Kite Festival happens on (and above) the lawns surrounding Zandvlei, Muizenberg (corner Axminster and The Row). Open from 10am to 6pm daily, the event offers lots of parking and easy access by train (False Bay or Muizenberg stations).
