Kirkcudbright visitors flying high thanks to annual kite festival
Visitors to Kirkcudbright were flying high at the weekend.
The Summer Festivities team put on the annual kite festival with massive structures flying above the town.
Sunday also saw the monthly producers’ market which proved popular with tourists.
Festivities chairman John Blaikie said: “It went very well. It was a Glasgow holiday and there were more Glasgow voices at the farmers’ market and the festival.
“There were lots of people and lots of them tried flying kites for themselves and bought them which was pleasing.
“First thing on Saturday there wasn’t much wind but it built up. Sunday was OK but it came and went. The guy was able to get the first kite up OK but had a few problems with the second one.”
Next up for the festivities team is the Festival of Light from October 7 to 9. It will take place around the town and some events will have a Viking theme to coincide with the arrival of the Galloway Viking Hoard at Kirkcudbright Galleries on October 9.
And later in October will be the popular food festival.
“It is great to see people in the town and the buzz that creates.”
