12th Cape Town International Kite Festival at Muizenberg.
On the 16th and 17th September 2006, the Cape Mental Health Society hosted another spectacular event at Zandvlei. There were professional kite flyers from Japan, New Zealand and North America as well as local South Africans. Many hundreds of visitors came to have fun at this magical event.

A colourful tent with kites of all shapes and colours for sale. This carp was flying around the Muizenberg Mountain.
This gecko is 15 meters long. The purple people eater.
This enterprising man made parachutes for sale and used our tent ropes to hang his wares.
We even had "water sprites" at the festival, who were more interested in what was in the water than the kites in the air.
Thank you to all the Members and City Nature Conservation staff who helped in the tent and assisted with the information displays and setting up.
