Kite Festival – 2021 Dates Keenly Awaited!

CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL KITE FESTIVAL

Update:

The 2021 Cape Town Kite Festival will take place in October 2021. It will once again not be a traditionally physical festival; we will have a hybrid festival, partially online and physically through pop-up flies and community engagement flies.  This has been confirmed by Corné Mouton the Events Organiser.

To stay updated please follow the Kite Festival Facebook page (see link below) or this post!

Africa’s biggest kite festival and attracts over 20,000 visitors, including some of the biggest names in kiting in South Africa and the world who fly in to show off their magnificent kite creations.

With kite-making, kite-flying, food stalls, kiddies’ rides, a full programme of entertainment and an eclectic craft market, this is family entertainment at its best.

The Cape Town International Kite Festival happens on (and above) the lawns of Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg (corner Axminster and The Row), from 10:00 to 18:00 daily. There is an entry fee payable on the day – proceeds go to Cape Mental Health, a not-for profit organization.

As soon as dates are confirmed we will share them here!  If you have any news on this event to share please contact us.

The Best Things To Do on a Full Moon in Cape Town

The Best Things To Do on a Full Moon in Cape Town

From The Inside Guide:  From sunset cruises to a leisurely hike and a picnic on the beach, there’s fun to be had when the sun goes down…

You don’t need to be a serious star-gazer (or a werewolf) to come alive at full moon. The fourth lunar phase – which occurs when the Earth lies between the sun and the moon – is a special time of month for most people. Particularly in a city like Cape Town, whose iconic landmarks seem to become even more exquisite when illuminated by the moon.

Whether you like to enjoy monthly full moons in quiet contemplation on your own, on a board, or riding around the city on a bicycle, we’ve rounded up a bunch of fun activities to enjoy under the moon.

Enjoy this great article and hopefully you’ll get some ideas or be inspired to share some of your own with us!  Link to original article
