The Wandering Kite festival is back this Sunday, after its huge success last year in Oughterard.
This year the festival will be held in a different location at Omey Strand Beach in Claddaghduff.
Ruth Mulhern is a Tourism Officer for Galway County Council. She says that “this is a colorful festival that will highlight Omey Strand as the ideal location”.
“People can expect a wonderful display of kite flying with lots of colour from some of the biggest kites in the world” added Mulhern. “If you are looking for other activities there this also plenty of music, food and kite making workshops to enjoy, why not learn a new skill of kite making?”
The event is weather permitting.
People are encouraged to bring picnic baskets and chairs to soak up the atmosphere at the festival, and is hoped to be a great opportunity to enjoy some time with the family.
Mulhern also added that the Kite Festival will highlight the Wild Atlantic Way.
“The Wild Atlantic Way is famous for its wild and windy shoreline and visitors from near and far will be delighted at the site of kites soaring high across the in this stunning location” said Mulhern.
