International Kite Weekend
Supported by Siemens Wind Power and East Riding of Yorkshire Council
Bring the family and enjoy a great day out where the sky will be filled with spectacular flying displays from around the world including breathtaking artistic creations and synchronised musical sport kite routines. On the ground there’ll be a chance to see our exhibition of amazing and beautiful kites from different countries. Bring your own kite to fly, buy a kite and try it out, or even make your own in the kite-making workshop. Plus trade and community stalls, fun-fair, Hull Carnival Arts, entertainment, refreshments and picnic area.
Some of the world’s leading kite-makers and kite-fliers have already confirmed their attendance: Ron and Baew Spaulding from Thailand, Gerhard and Daniela Zitzman from Austria, Rene and Franziska Maier from Switzerland, Stafford Wallace and Mehul Pathak from India. From the UK, we welcome Malcolm and Jeanette Goodman, Paul and Natalie Reynolds, Mike and Fran Goddard along with world famous stunt flying team – The Decorators!
