The Bridlington Kite Festival, which was unfortunately cancelled earlier this year due to COVID-19, will become a virtual festival instead in 2020.
The festival, which is an annual celebration of kites, should have taken place at Sewerby Fields, Bridlington on Saturday, 16 and Sunday, 17 May 2020.
But as a virtual festival it will give participants, supporters and families the opportunity to take part and stay safe in the comfort of their own homes.
On Saturday, 16 May and Sunday, 17 May, from 10am-5pm, the whole family will be able to experience a weekend of fun through the Bridlington Kite Festival Facebook page.
It will come to life with a host of videos, photos, facts, competitions and interactive activities, including how to make your own kite at home.
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "This virtual festival will be yet another reminder of how creative and engaged people can be during this enforced time spent at home, and how the council is helping people stay actively involved throughout.
"Although this year's festival is quite obviously different to previous years it will undoubtedly have the same spirit of fun and cooperation through the Facebook page."
The kite festival - which attracts some of the world's most internationally renowned flyers performing highly skilled colourful sequences (from rare Oriental Kites, Indian Fighter Kites and some of the world's largest inflatables) - will hopefully be back in 2021 bigger and better than ever.
People are invited to like and follow @BridlingtonKiteFestival on Facebook and to attend the 2020 virtual festival; and we hope to see you all there next year.
