Harrington Kite Festival
The kite festival is always a family favourite and the colourful aerial display will be back to the beautiful Harrington Marina in Workington on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August 2019.
The event, which runs from 11 am to 4 pm on both days, will feature a huge kite display by international professionals SmileFactor10. Their impressive kites can be seen from miles around.
In addition to the kite displays, there will be a funfair, a local market, face painting, and children’s entertainment. The event is totally free, with just a small charge for the funfair.
Everyone is urged to bring their favourite teddy or soft toy so we can send them up on the zip wire and see how high they can fly. There is also a public flying session as part of the timetable. So come along, borrow a kite, or bring your own and fly with the professionals!
Free kite-making workshops will take place before the festival on Wednesday the 14th and Thursday 15th of August in Harrington Youth Club. Workshops last for 1 hour and start at 11 am and 2 pm each day. Booking is essential.
