Spent most of Saturday roasting myself alive at the Georgetown Festival opening event, Taking Off.
I met up with Square and her boyfriend at around 11am and we decided to go try hunting for the cats (101 Lost Kittens).
Well, we found the only two that are up so far (it seems that the other 10 won’t be up until June 22). There were lots of people around taking photos with the cat (and mouse). The car parked there was rather in the way too.
We had lunch at Cozy in the Rocket, and then had ice-cream at China House before proceeding to Esplanade for Taking Off.
These kites were attached on a string to another one (that’s not in the frame here) and they’d bob up and down depending on the height of the one at the end.
Some of the kites up in the air that day, compiled into a gallery:
Lots of people took advantage of the free kites and tried their hands at kite-flying (click on the thumbnails to see bigger versions):
They had markers at the kite booths so that people could draw designs or write stuff on their kites. I’m sure that kids had fun with this (although there were older people who were happily scribbling on their kites too).
There was a drum circle too, but I don’t think my pictures of that are that fantastic. They should have timed the drum circle workshop better too, if they wanted people to stay back and participate in the official opening ceremony. Having it an hour and a half before the ceremony was quite silly. But that was the only silly thing about the whole event. (Thankfully. haha) Good event overall.
