The kite festival
The largest UK beach kite festival,a 3 day event bringing in 1000's of locals and visitors alike. lots of stalls,events,and food plus in the pavilion the kids could create and design their own kites.
I won us a massive tiger too!!
We followed the kite festival up in the afternoon with a lovely boat trip to sightsea portland £10 adults £5 children. this is another thing i highly recommend great value for an hours trip and stunning views!!
