Malmesbury Kite Festival (United Kingdom)
[Malmesbury, Wiltshire, UK] The Malmesbury Kite Festival is being organised as part of the Town’s celebrations to mark the 1000th anniversary of Eilmer’s Flight.

The times are 10:00 am until 4:00 pm each day, with various intermissions scheduled throughout the weekend. The gardens were voted as the third best attraction in the Chicagoland area, so plan to spend the entire weekend flying kites and visiting this beautiful park.
