http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jx9dIUFNq8 We found this lovely video of the annual Kite Festival in Russell Park on Youtube, by the very talented Lez Marwick (we always approve of the ad-hoc use of a 'z' in names.)
We were tickled by his description of the event;
"This is an annual event held in Russell Park. The venue is far from ideal for kite flyers, as it is surrounded by trees, but it is in an excellent location for spectators... It was a very dull day, with a constant threat of rain, but at least we had some wind."
2012 was not kind to the Kite Festival. There may have been cases of Trench Foot. Let's hope this year is a bit more kite flier and spectator-friendly.
See you in Russell Park for more kite-excitement, at the 2013 Kite Festival this weekend! Remember you can always refuel and refresh at The Kiosk...
