‘All about ability
’ is the theme for the eighteenth Cape Town International Kite Festival
, Africa’s biggest kite festival, which is proudly hosted by Cape Mental Health
with Heart 104.9FM
, and will take place at Zandvlei
, in Muizenberg on 3 & 4 November 2012
. The Cape Town International Kite Festival
will be open from 10:00 to 18:00
each day and takes place on the lawns surrounding Zandvlei, Muizenberg
. There is lots of parking and easy access by train (False Bay or Muizenberg stations).
The annual Cape Town International Kite Festival attracts talented kite-makers and kite fliers from around the world. This is Africa’s biggest kite festival
and attracts over 20,000 visitors, including some of the biggest names in kiting in the world to show off their magnificent kite creations.
Local kite-makers are invited to enter the Heritage Kite Award
and school children can participate in the Edu-Kite Schools’ Competition
. The Edu-Kite Schools’ Competition brings together children from 40 primary schools to decorate kites and take part in a mass fly.
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.
“This year the kite festival will celebrate our organisation’s new slogan ‘all about ability,’ which reflects our belief in the ability of children and adults with mental disability to acquire skills, develop their potential, and live full and contributing lives. It’s up to us to help create opportunities and provide the necessary care and support
,” said Ingrid Daniels, Director of Cape Mental Health.Entry is just R20 for adults and R10 for children
