Kite Festival – My Halifax – Things To Do In Halifax


Hi guys and welcome to this week’s My Halifax. My name is Adam Cooper. If you’re new to our Youtube channel, we make
videos all about the fun and cool things you can do in and around Halifax. Last week was Canada Day we took a bit of
a break we didn’t do a full vlog which is why we’re excited to be back out filming this
week especially we found a really fun event. It’s a kite festival happening on the Citadel
Hill right now, let’s check it out. This is one of those events that we actually
went to film last year but we got the timing completely wrong so when we got here nothing
was happening. So we’re really glad we came back. It’s just a great family event like there’s
families everywhere and it’s just really cute to see some of these kids with their parents
running around flying the kites. Everyone is super excited and there’s adults
flying kites because it’s fun and it’s just really nice to see such a space in Halifax
that’s so iconic being used in such a fun way. I wasn’t sure what to expect for the Kite
Festival I mean this is so much more fun than I thought it was going to be because I didn’t
know if it’d be windy enough. Some of these kites are huge like there’s
one flying right now and we’re struggling to film it because it’s so high up but it’s
massive I’m trying to work out how big it is and there’s huge bouncy castle here there’s
one of Batman which is always cool, you guys know how much I love Batman and it’s just
got a lot more to it than just a kite festival which is why I think there’s so many people
here right now because there’s a lot of stuff to do. You could just sit, chill out listen to some
music, go and grab some food from the vendors, you can buy and hire kites here, or you could
bring your own like someone just bought a kite that looks like a ship it’s insane some
of the kites that are here. It’s a great time to be out in the summer
enjoying Halifax. This has been such a great event. It’s one of those events that is actually
hard for us to film. Some of these kites are so high up that even
with full zoom on both cameras we can’t necessarily get close as we want so hopefully they look
as good in footage as they do in real life. They probably won’t because some of these
are so spectacular. It’s one of those events where it’s such a
Halifax event like everyone’s here, people walking their dogs, people coming to fly kites
and it’s just such a community feel and it’s events like that especially in the summer
like it 30 degrees today that make Halifax so special and it’s stuff like this that made
us want to make My Halifax in the first place. So that is the end of this week’s My Halifax. Thank you so much for watching. The Kite Festival was so much fun it was a
lot more like a club and had lots of rave music but everyone’s out there’s kids out
with their Dad’s there’s adults with crazy I think that kite might be 20 feet long like
it’s huge and it’s just really cool to see Halifax using something as historic as the
Citadel for something so modern. If there’s anywhere you think we should make
