Kite professionals and fans around the world will meet from 5th to 8th November 2015 at the 28 edition of the International Kite Festival held at the Dunes of Corralejo Natural Park. This Kite Festival began in 1987 thanks to the initiative of a group of amateur kite flyers, who selflessly promoted a meeting that brings together every year audience of tourists and kite enthusiasts. The festival is visited by regional and international kite flyers mostly from the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. They will paint with colours the sky of Corralejo and El Cotillo beach at a festival, that after more than a quarter of a century, has extensive national projection internationally and a significant impact on the media.
The festival is organized by the Department of Tourism of the City of La Oliva and will begin 5th November 2015.
Throughout the days of the event, incredible massive kites can be seen flying over the beaches of Fuerteventura, making the Corralejo Nature Reserve an even more spectacular sight. This is a good opportunity to discover this space for the first time, or to revisit its immense sand dunes, radiant sun with its views over the Isla de Lobos Nature Reserve in the background.
Last year the mayor of La Oliva, Claudia Morales, and the Councillor for Tourism, Marcelino Umpiérrez, presented the twenty-seventh edition, together with the organizers of the event, and Claudio Jacinto Rodriguez Azzali, who announced that school township will also have an important role during the event.
The program will start on Thursday 5th November on playa de la Concha (El Cotillo), with a display of acrobatic flight and static kites, although the inaugural flight will be one day later on Friday at Playa del Burro next to the great dunes of Corralejo National Park.
Numerous free kites are handed out so that kids and adults can participate, don’t be shy and grab one!
