The New Carnival Company are set to present an outdoor celebration of local environment, creativity, and family fun on Saturday.
Head to Yarmouth and enjoy professional Kite Displays from Shropshire based artists Sky Bums, a public kite flying area, Kite Making workshops, Samba music from FaT Samba band, Storytelling from Sue Bailey, the Oyster Girls Morris dancers, try circus skills with Wight Stars and much more!
You can also join the Kite Walk – a fun and easy 1 mile procession from River Road Car Park, Yarmouth to the site. Participants should meet at 11:30. Everyone welcome, including well behaved dogs.
Frankie Goldspink, Participation & Learning Manager for The New Carnival Company said:
‘The Festival has a wide community focus. Our Outreach Team has been out and about all over the Island this summer helping people create their own kites for the Festival. Over 200 kites, many made from Biodegradable materials and decorated taking inspiration from local Sea and Shore biodiversity, will be on display along professionally made kites. You can even make your own in the workshop tent if you don’t have one to bring along!”
Entrance to the festival, to be held on Saturday 21st September at Fort Victoria Country Park, nr Yarmouth, is free.
Please be aware there is limited car parking on site, but a free Park and Ride is being operated from Golden Hill Fort, with a free overflow car park at River Road from 11:15 for Kite Walkers only. The event runs from 11am to 4pm.
Fort Victoria Country Park, nr Yarmouth is off the A3054, PO41 ORR.
