Welcome to St Annes International Kite Festival
Thanks to the support of St Annes and Fylde Borough council, local business and sponsors we are pleased to announce, for the fith year, the St Annes Kite Festival on the 30th and 31st of July 2016. This year we will be welcoming the 7 strong Al-Farsi Kuwait Flying Team with one of the biggest collections of huge inflatable kites.
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 will 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 Oscar - THE WORLD'S LARGEST TEDDY BEAR KITE, giant inflatable Octopus, manta rays, flying cows, dogs, hippos, and new for this year - THE WORLD'S LARGETS KITE. Plus 2-line and 4-line stunt kites flown in time to music, and so much more.
With live music on the beach for 2 days and a Samba Sunday with procession and Brazilian dancers we will bring a taste of Brazil to St. Annes beach. Bring along a drum and whistle.
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 30th and Sunday 31st July 2016 for All The Fun of The Air!
