I have seen some posts on facebook and it seems that there's a two way split on moving the Kite festival.
Some people think it should be kept in July, "when it's warmer", but others don't
I think moving it was a good idea as people visit Morecambe during the summer anyway. As a coastal town we need to attract people in during the quieter months, and despite the wind being very strong and bracing today, the Kite Festival looked to be very well attended.
The movement will ,hopefully, have brought in people who may not have visited if it wasn't for the festival.
After all, flying kites is a windy day pursuit, not exclusively a sunny day one.
Plus, I love wild windy days like we have today.
