Event: -
Bayside Kite Spectacular
The skies over Rosebud beach will be filled with some very serious kites over the weekend Saturday & Sunday the 8th and 9th March.

Kite flying has come a long way in the 2500 years since the Chinese first flew kites constructed of bamboo and silk.

The Rosebud event brings together world-renowned kite flyers from both Australian and New Zealand to fly super-sized maxi-Kites, stunt kites and single-line kites.

The festival will include 'kite-boarding', a kids carnival and roving entertainers as well as kite-flying workshops, a family kite flying area, community stalls, kids interactive zone, circus skills and hoola-hoop workshop.

I wonder what "Kite Boarding" is? Sounds like a fun festival. Rosebud is a great little place for a day trip.
