The skies over Redcliffe are set to come to colourful life again with the annual Redcliffe KiteFest, a bumper weekend of family fun for all ages at Clontarf's Pelican Park.
Redcliffe KiteFest will feature world-class kite displays from international and domestic kite flyers as kites of all shapes and sizes fill the sky, along with a host of other activities over the whole 2 days.
Highlights of this year's KiteFest include:
The Kindred Main Stage - Here you can see an array of amazing performers, from award-winning musicians such as Leo Altarelli, to a very special guest Pinkfong performing the international phenomenon BABY SHARK live stage show at 11:30am & 2:00pm on Saturday and Sunday. And for the little ones, Humphrey B Bear will be on the Kindred Main Stage for his fun-filled nature shows at 10am and to learn his Kite Flying Tips and Tricks at 12:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
The Jet Ski stunt shows - These jaw-dropping stunts are set to blow everyone out of the water, with spectacular shows at 10:30am on both Saturday and Sunday.
Kite Flying Displays - This year there will be four International and five Domestic Kite Flyers travelling to the event plus a whole sweep of brilliant kite flyers from the local Redcliffe Kite Club on the USC Kite Arena to show off their skills. And for those who want to fly their own kite, there's the options to bring, buy or make your own kite and fly it in the Public Kite Flying Zone.
Sesame Lane KiteFest Kidz - This dedicated kids zone is filled with a range of free and lowcost activities, bursting with fun, colour, and entertainment specifically for children aged 10 and under. Stop by Flutter’s Fairy land at 10:40am & 2:30pm to stop the Greedy Goblin or for face painting and story time at selected times twice daily.
Welcome to the Whales - New to Redcliffe KiteFest this year is this new initiative, a celebration of the whale migration season in Moreton Bay. Families can join in the welcoming of the gentle giants to the region via the Whale Wishing ceremony, or learning more about marine wildlife through touch tanks and get the kids involved in science activities.
In between all of these fantastic acts and performances, there are also hundreds of markets stalls to keep everyone entertained, from shopping for that perfect gift to trying some delicious food.
Need to know - Take the parking stress out of your Redcliffe KiteFest experience and head straight to the Redcliffe Showgrounds where you can park and ride the shuttle bus for FREE, running regularly all weekend from 8:30am until 5:00pm.
Tickets - Adults $10, Children/Concession $5, Family Pass (2 Adults & 2 Children) $25 (+ online book fee)
