The BEST Holiday Fun Event in West Norfolk – THIS WEEKEND!

Get ready to be amazed once again this August at The Kite Fair and Class Car Rally in Hunstanton. Every year thousands of people attend this outstanding show, held at the Smithdon School in Downs Lane, PE36 5HY. ‘The Kite’ always attracts thousands of visitors, and this year will be featuring professional kite flying displays, including giant kites that have to be tethered to large vans, and the outstanding classic car Concourse d' Elegance which will feature well over 200 cars and motorcycles.

Add to this a programme an indoor Craft Fair of almost 100 stalls, and a packed full of arena displays from martial arts to dog agility demonstrations, children’s entertainments, rides, a food court and licenced bar plus a huge indoor craft market, and it is no surprise that this annual event continues to be popular with friends and families of all ages.

Now in its 21st year, ‘The Kite’ is organized by the Rotary Club of Hunstanton & District to raise funds which are then distributed largely to local good causes, organisations and individuals who need them. As before, this year’s fundraising at the event will significantly benefit the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House. In all, during 2016/17, the Hunstanton Club donated £23,000.

This year will be an outstanding day with something for everyone from the 11am start to the 6pm finish. Car parking at the event is free all day for those who are attending ‘The Kite’ and there is a free return-trip bus ride available from three stops in Hunstanton, thanks to Lynx Buses. Anyone who parks and pays in the town car parks is welcome to use the bus service to get to and from the show ground.

The whole day offer people of all ages something to make their day out fun and entertaining, from the range of displays, entertainments, crafts, cars and kites, food and falconry, right up to a special fly past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s own Lancaster!

Tickets are only £6 per adult, £2 per child, or £15 for a family. All you have to do is order your ticket online or buy it at the gate, and Sunday August 20th will become a day to remember whatever your age or interest. This really is a show that has something for everyone.
