Hunstanton gets set for kite and classic car fest

Thousands will be flocking to Hunstanton at the weekend for the town Rotary Club's 15th Kite Festival and Classic Car Rally. The event is being held on the playing fields at the Smithdon High School, in Downs Road, from 9am - 5pm on Sunday.

Kite clubs, professional fliers and kite sellers will be providing some spectacular displays and demonstrations through the day, including mutliple kites flying to music.

There will also be space for visitors to fly their own kites, or receive tuition if they would like to find out more about the sport.

Hundreds of vintage and classic vehicles are also expected to attend the event, which will include a parade of cars, bikes and other historic vehicles.

There will also be a craft fair on the school field, with children's amusements, entertainment, stalls, a bar, barbeque, ice-cream, teas, cakes and sandwiches.
