2017 description: The list of kiters that will entertain this year with their mind-boggling kites isn’t complete yet, but confirmed already are 8 from around South Africa as well 7 international flyers from Poland, England, Germany and Tasmania. Eden is attracting increasing international interest, being seen as an exciting and enjoyable stop for kiters en route to the longstanding Cape Town International Kite Festival. And let’s not forget our Garden Route kiters who regularly decorate the local skies during the year. There will be some unique creative designs this year, with 2 of the international participants – Karl Longbottom from England (who was at Eden in 2015) and Robert Brasington from Tasmania – being regarded as 2 of the finest artistic kitemakers in the world. Once again there will be a full programme of entertainment catering for all ages, and an expanded craft and food market. There are two new features being planned: – A trail run starting and ending at the kite field – An attempt to set a South African record of 2 000 kites in the air simultaneously, flown by the public Watch for more details on those as plans progress. The festival takes place at Eden Lawns along the N2 in Sedgefield from 9.30 to 16.30 on Sunday 22 October. On Saturday 21st October from 16.30, there is an opening concert at Masithandane’s Octopus Garden under the Sea at the Scarab Market in Sedgefield. Wendy Oldfield and LeRoy Botha will be performing, so bring your own chairs, blankets and picnic and enjoy the music and meet the mayor and the Kitefliers under the stars! Tickets are limited and are available at Tourism and at Sotheby’s offices. The concert and the festival are in aid of Masithandane’s Bursary Fund which supports learners attending school by providing basic necessities as well as transport to learners
