Buy a kite before or at this year’s Kaibo Kite Fest on Grand Cayman, just make sure you have one because you’re in for a high-flying good time at a fun Caribbean tradition. Kaibo Beach on Grand Cayman is again the site for Kaibo Kite Fest, a joy-filled festival for awe seekers of all ages. This grand celebration of kites features opportunities to fly home-made or professionally constructed kites, and enter a competition to possibly be awarded “best flyer.”
There will be dancing in the sand to music from Bona Fide, a local band who is scheduled to perform unplugged from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Paddle boarding, kayaking and more await those who make their way to beautiful Kaibo Beach on Monday, April 2, 2018.
About Kaibo Kite Fest
Kaibo Kite Fest is part of Kaibo Beach community organizers’ vision to bring Caymanian culture to residents and tourists. The kite festival is an unofficial welcome of the summer season and it takes place when the wind is absolutely perfect for kite flying. The festival happens to take place over Easter break this year, which means many Cayman visitors on vacation have the opportunity to come and enjoy a prized Grand Cayman location.
Grand Cayman’s breezy shoreline will offer so plenty of beauty and lush landscape to be enjoyed. This Kite Fest is a way to showcase how lovely our island beaches are for kids, families and any type of resident or tourist. The event is free and it’s environmentally friendly, as there isn’t need for much except people, kites, wind and music.
Competition entrants have the chance to win prizes from local companies, such as a Digicel smartphone or a Cayman Airways flight. Registration for the various contests begins at 1 p.m. Before or after Kaibo Kite Fest, Kaibo Beach is a perfect place to spend the day with a picnic or just enjoying the company of friends and family.
