A Look At The Kite Flying Festival At Bondi Beach
The Festival of the Winds, also known as the Festival of Kites, is an annual event that is usually held in Bondi Beach. It offers an excellent opportunity for one to try out flying a huge array of kites, as well as taking part in many other activities as well. The event will be held in September this year, so you have plenty of time to plan for it if you are interested in visiting Australia then.
How to get to Bondi Beach
If you want to take part in the festivities, it’s important that you arrange for the transport to the venue early in advance. This is especially so if you are not familiar with the layout of the region. The easiest way to do this would be to rent a minibus which can transport you and your family to the beach. Public transport is also available to and from the beach, but most non locals might find it difficult to travel using this means of transport.
Can you fly your own kite?
One of the hallmarks of the festival is the presence of numerous kite flying professionals, who take the opportunity to show off their skills and creations. However, if you have your own, you will also be free to fly it during the venue. In fact, this is encouraged since it means that more people will actively participate during the event.
What if you don’t have a kite?
Even if you have never flown a kite before, you will still find visiting the festival to be a lot of fun. By doing so, you can indulge in the beauty that most of such creations have to offer, and you can learn a lot about them. You will also get the opportunity to interact with kite enthusiasts as well, and you may end up making quite a number of friends this way. There are a number of kite making workshops that are usually set up during the festival, so you can go learn how to make and fly your own kite on that day.
Other activities you can take part in
There is a lot more that you can do in addition to flying kites. A large number of other fun activities are usually set up on that day, including face painting, puppet shows, dance workshops (which, incidentally, a free to participate in) and other forms of roaming entertainment.
