Giant octopi, manta rays and mermaids will soon fill the skies of Exmouth as part of the Rotary Club of Exmouth & District's annual kite festival.

The high-flying two-day spectacle gets started on Saturday, August 4, at 10.30am when it will be opened by the town’s mayor and a group of Star Wars characters, including Jedi warriors – complete with light sabres.

A spokesman for the festival said: “We are planning some great shows for you this year from world class flyers, spectacular flying displays, mass ascents of artistic kites, and breathtaking synchronised routines flown to music.

Look out for spectacular special shapes with swirling giant octopi, manta rays, mermaids, whales, geckos and other mega beasts.”

This year, a public vote will determine a local cause to benefit from festival funds.

The Journal will be publishing more information about the festival and how to vote in the run-up to the event.
