Kites go high at festival of wind

YEPPOON'S Angel Lindley was among the thousands who turned out for the Festival of Winds at Emu Park yesterday.

Organisers were clearly on a high late yesterday afternoon with the big turnout which was tipped to be double the previous best.

“It would be in the thousands, but how many thousand I wouldn't know,” event co-ordinator Bill Moore said.

He said kites were flown well into the night.

Those present enjoyed perfect conditions with a strong breeze and clear skies.

“So many families that have come down to have had a great day,” Bill said.

“This has been the best one we have had.”
