The skies over Pelican Park were filled with colourful kites of all shapes and sizes over the weekend, as the annual Redcliffe Festival kicked off. 

KiteFest makes up the first part of the three weekend-long Redcliffe Festival.

The KiteFest, which is aimed at children, ran over two days. KiteFest included markets, food, stage performances, water-sport performances and of course, hundreds of kites flying around in the sky.

The festival has its own KiteFest Karnival full of rides and amusements for both kids and adults alike as well as the Sesame Lane KiteFest Kids Zone, the fun-filled area designed especially for kids under ten.

Adults were treated to a bar area that overlooked Bramble Bay and was situated right in front of the main stage so guests didn’t miss out on any of the stage performances.

The main stage pulled crowds of hundreds of small children on their Mum or Dad’s shoulders to catch a glimpse of the performances from ‘Paw Patrol’ and ‘Trolls’.

There were also performances from various young and talented musicians throughout the day.

Kitefest attendee Alyx Smith said it wasn’t only her two-year-old daughter who loved the day-out.

“It was such a great family day, my daughter loved seeing Paw Patrol, I think she’s going to be howling for the rest of the week, ” Ms Smith said.

The Redcliffe Festival will turn the Moreton Bay Peninsula into a family-friendly fun zone with markets, performances, food and much more. The festival will run from Saturday, 26th August to Sunday, 10th September.
