Parksville prepares to go fly a kite

Kite Festival on tap for this weekend at the beach

Don’t miss Kitefest this weekend in the Parksville Community Park.

The day promises to be a fun-filled extravaganza, with demonstrations, a kite building station, a Teddy bear drop for kids and food and craft vendors.

Visitors and residents alike can watch acrobatic kite flying from the world’s kite champion, the Island Quad Team from Victoria, and John Vriend’s Monster Kites.

The two-day Lions Club event takes place on July 21 and 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free to attend.
