Come fly away with kite club at local festival

IT'S not a bird, and it sure isn't a plane.

The large objects that will be looming over Bundaberg skies this weekend belong to the Redcliff Kite Club.

The only Queensland-based kite club will travel to the region as part of the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival.

Club president Mick Crowley said along with the octopus kite, which stretches 30 metres by 10 metres, there will a team formation of kites that will perform tricks.

Mr Crowley is hoping the weather is on his side for the weekend art event.

"We are hoping the wind isn't too angry,” he said.

Along with the kites there will be ground displays and a build-your-own kite workshop.

Mr Crowley said any kite enthusiast were more than welcome to come along and fly their own kites at the festival too.
