Dallas Posthemus from Werribee, who was spending the school holidays in Merrigum, got into the kite-making activities.
Last Monday’s kite making session at Merrigum was a huge success according to organisers, with 35 children and a number of parents attending.
Presented by Greater Shepparton City Council and Parks Victoria as part of their Activities in the Park program, youngsters eagerly took in what Rob ‘The Kite Man’ King said as they coloured in and prepared their kites.
Held at the Merrigum Recreation Reserve, the free event created plenty of interest, with participants keen to show off their skills.
Kids were able to design and make their own kite to take home, and watch it fly above the tree tops. All equipment supplied.
Mr King said it was pleasing to see so many kids turn up and take an active interest in kite making.
Similar events were held at Toolamba, which attracted 72 children and Undera the previous week.
