After an absence of many years Cleethorpes is once again proud to host a spectacular weekend of kite flying. The sky will be awash with unique and magnificent kites of all shapes and sizes from around the world. DFDS is delighted to be headline sponsor of the Kite Festival on Cleethorpes seafront this September.
The festival has attracted some of the best kite flyers from the UK who will breeze into Cleethorpes and provide a fantastic two day extravaganza. You will be amazed at the explosion of colour in the sky - from the beautiful to the bizarre. Expect kites of every shape and size - an extensive collection of giant inflatable kites, superheroes, sea creatures, giant lizards, birds, insects, bears, Chinese dragons, Japanese carp, artistic kites, fighting kites, wind socks, musical kites and lots lots more.
Alongside the backdrop of kites we will have displays of four line synchronised team flying to music and an unbelievable display of one man flying 3 sports kites simultaneously, plus a jaw-dropping Rokkaku Kitefighting Challenge where flyers will attempt to cut each others kites out of the sky.
Programme subject to weather conditions.
DFDS is delighted to be headline sponsor of the Look Up! Kite Festival on Cleethorpes seafront this September, as part of the inaugural Festival of the Sky.
Communications Officer for DFDS Seaways PLC, Coreen Penheiro-Wharton said: "One aspect that makes the Festival of the Sky on Cleethorpes seafront so appealing is be able to see a specially-made DFDS kite in the design of a ship flying high above Cleethorpes beach whilst seeing full-sized DFDS liner ships making their way along the Humber as they connect Immingham with Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium."
