It’s almost that time of the year again. We hope you’ve been doing some serious kite prepping, because the 28th Cape Town Kite Festival is fast approaching! Everyone, everywhere is invited to fill the sky with all sorts of shapes, colours and magic in support of Mental Health Awareness.
#FlyYourDreams at this year’s Cape Town Kite Festival in October! One is never too old to dream, and this year Cape Mental Health is encouraging children and youth to fly a kite in support of mental health awareness.
This year’s interactive event combines real-life open-air kite-flying with online competitions, shopping, videos, kids activities and more so you know you’re in for a ball of a time!

Invest in your mental health – invest in our future.
