Welcome to St Annes Kite Festival
FREE! Yes FREE family fun on the beach!
The time has nearly arrived to pack a picnic and head to the beach for family fun. There will be a mini fun fair for the pre teens, punch and judy, Melville and Catch's Victorian Shoppe, sand castle building competition and so much more. Don't forget the photo competition and the theme is 'family fun'. Live music will be provided on Saturday and Sunday by local muscians, playing original material on the bandstand. Don't forget to check them out and give them an audience. On Sunday there will be samba music from the World Wise Samba Band.
Thanks to the support of St Annes and Fylde Borough council we are pleased to announce, for the third year, the St Annes Kite Festival on the 26th and 27th of July 2014. The skies above St Annes seafront will be awash with colour on Saturday and Sunday as fabulous display kites take to the air on the beach adjacent to the pier. Following on from last year's success we hope to make this Summer's kite festival even bigger, better and more colourful. Check out the gallery or our facebook page for pictures.
The festival will feature single line kites of all shapes and sizes, including a 30 metre long inflatable Octopus, flying cows, dogs, hippos, and new for this year - Oscar - THE WORLD'S LARGEST TEDDY BEAR KITE. Plus 2-line and 4-line stunt kites flown in time to music, and so much more.
Bring your teddy bear or cuddly toy to take part in the teddy parachute drop sponsored by Storytellers Inc Book Shop. Each brave teddy will receive a very special certificate of achievement. During the weekend there will be lots of entertainment for "kids of all ages" including market stalls, face painting, and fairground rides for pre-teens.
Weather permitting, the event promises a thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable day out for young and old alike. So pack a picnic, gather together family and friends, and head down to St Annes beach from 11.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th July 2014 for All The Fun of The Air!
