Wingecarribee Shire Council is inviting residents to wave good-bye to winter and celebrate the latest Sesquicentenary event by flying a kite at Eridge Park this Saturday.

“The Kite Flying Family Fun Day is a great chance to shake off those winter blues and partake in another 150th birthday event celebrating the settlement of Moss Vale and Bowral,” said Mark Pepping, Council’s Group Manager Strategic and Assets.

“It’s also an opportunity to get out and treat dad to an early Father’s Day gift.”

The free Kite Flying Fun Day will be held at Eridge Park, located on the corner of Eridge Park and Moss Vale Roads, Bowral this Saturday 31 August from 10am to 2pm.

A specialist kite company will also be on hand running DIY kite making workshops and selling kites on site.

A sausage sizzle and water drink station will also be available on the day.

“We recommend visitors bring with them a blanket, hat, sunglasses and hopefully a slight breeze,” Mr Pepping added. “And of course, kites of all shapes and sizes are welcome.”
