Default International Kite Flying Event

Does anyone know the timings for this Friday's event at Dubai Creek Park?

I'm sure many posters on here would be delighted to see you go fly a kite.

The lack of replies surprises me.

So nobody knows. Absolutely bugger-all on the internet. Needless to say, when calling Dubai Creek offices, nobody picks up the phone. Heard about it on Radio Coast FM so may try them.

But it doesn't say the timings, which is what my query was about. Will go with BC and her twitter source, although the last International Kite Flying Festival held overseas was from 5-10pm. Thanks for the input.

Sorry I just read the few lines under the main heading. So it's 10am-5pm but they are charging Dhs25 extra. Not sure if that's only for participants coz entry to the park is separate. May turn up and have a look.

Why pay to get in? Surely this is one of those things you can veiw happily from "outside". I'm surprised at you...
