The 16th annual Cape Town International Kite Festival is set to take place from October 23 and 24 in Muizenberg. This year’s event is themed ‘Uplifting Mind and Body’ and is hosted by Cape Mental Health.
The festival will be open from 10h00 to 18h00 each day and takes place on the lawns surrounding Zandvlei in Muizenberg.
The event annually attracts over 20 000 visitors, including some of the biggest names in kiting in South Africa and from around the globe who fly in to show off their kite creations.
“More and more people are suffering from stress and mental ill health,” said Ingrid Daniels, Director of Cape Mental health.
“By inviting people to fly their kites, and highlighting the connection between physical and mental well-being, we hope to uplift minds and bodies.”
Plentiful parking will be available on the day and there is easy access by train from False Bay or Muizenberg stations. Entry is R15 for adults and R5 for children.
All profits will go directly to Cape Mental Health to support their services for people in disadvantaged communities.
