Impressive kites of all shapes and sizes were flown by professional kite flyers but many people brought their own kites to fly.

There was also live music, art and music workshops, street entertainment and bands, a funfair, storytellers, stalls, and festival food.

The two-day festival closed with a celebratory parade bringing together all of the street bands from the festival and artistic creations made over the weekend.
