Fylde Council in partnership with kite festival organisers, SmileFactor10, is delighted to announce that the hugely popular St Annes International Kite Festival will return on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2019 with illuminated ‘kites by night’ and fireworks on Friday 9th August to mark the start of this incredible event.
Taking place on the beach adjacent to St Annes Pier, the event will attract tens of thousands of visitors from all over the country to see kite flyers from across the globe. Unique kites of all different shapes and sizes will fill the skies creating an incredible spectacle not to be missed.
In addition to the kites there will also be a fun fair, donkey rides, attractions, stalls and all the fun of the traditional British seaside.
Councillor Little, Chair of Fylde Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee says, “I am so pleased that this popular annual family event is back for another fantastic year and that Fylde Council are able to ensure this event remains firmly on the calendar of what is a growing number of events each year.
“The passion of Pat May and the kite organising team from SmileFactor10 is obvious and it is great that the Council can work in partnership to ensure the delivery of a successful weekend which I know is the busiest weekend of the year for the town”.
Pat May says “The St Annes International Kite Festival has grown to be such a popular event over the years and for Fylde Council to work so closely with the kite committee means we can really focus on delivering a spectacular event which I know is so popular”
This summer is proving to be another exceptionally busy one with Lytham Festival, the Men’s Senior Open sponsored by Rolex, Kirkfest, Lytham 1940s Wartime Weekend, not to mention the many local carnivals and Club Days.
