Mayor Peter Flannery says it is a one-of-a-kind event and true spectacle to behold.
“We’re all looking for an excuse to party, so you’d better get in and get your tickets quick,” he says.
“If you’ve never been to KiteFest before, I promise there’s no better place to be in South East Queensland than the sparkling blue waters of Moreton Bay on a clear spring day with a kaleidoscope of kites in the sky.”
MBRIT Chairman Shane Newcombe says it is the ultimate family weekend, with activities, stage shows and thrills to excite all members of the family.
“The addition of the very popular Bluey to this year’s program takes the event to new heights and we can’t wait,” Mr Newcombe says.
