We took the children to the first day of the festival today. The weather was perfect for flying our kite on the beach and watching the amazing display of kites in the bright blue sky. There are still a couple of days left of the festival this year, otherwise, it is a free community event that happens every year at Semaphore beach. It’s a lot of fun for the young and young at heart!
