Berrow hosted its sixth beach kite festival at Beachside Holiday Park, in Coast Road, on Saturday and Sunday.

Flying displays were put on by some of the county’s top kite experts.

Tim Rohn flew a 70ft long dragon kite which had a 30ft wing span, of which there are only four in the UK.

For the first time, an illuminated kite display took place each evening.

Event organiser Gaynor Brown said: “We were busy both days and the weather was ideal. Kiters came from all around and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“The event seems to get bigger and better each time and we are already planning next year’s festival.”
