11 Apr 2021 Annual Event
Festival of the Wind is a unique and exciting event on the Capricorn Coast held at beautiful Emu Park’s Bell Park and Fisherman’s Beach and attracts families from across the region.
Bringing back the old and one of life’s simple pleasures, the backbone of this festival is kite flying. If you are not flying a kite, you can feast your eyes on the myriad of kites, flown by world class professional kite flyers, of all colours, shapes and sizes dancing in the sky, watching them duck and dive amidst the winds.
Festival goers can meander through one of Emu Park’s largest markets of the year, enjoy the carnival atmosphere with rides, games, face painting and live entertainment with plenty of food and drink available, or make their way down to Fisherman’s Beach to watch the Coast Guard’s flare display. The more adventurous may like to try their hand at sand sculpturing or enter the beach game competitions (individual and teams of 4) where they may just win a prize for their efforts.
Enjoy live entertainment through to the finale at dusk when spectators will be awed by a monster fireworks display.
Please note this “Covid Safe” and alcohol free event is specifically designed for family entertainment. Markets start: 8am & Festival activities: 10am. FREE ENTRY. For more info, please visit the website.
