And let’s not forget the awesome pop up fly events that are taking place. Make some space in your diary right now to avoid missing out on all the fun.

Date: Sunday, 10 October 2021

Place: Dolphin Beach, Table View

Time: 11am – 3pm

Date: Saturday, 23 October 2021

Place: Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg

Time: 11am – 3pm

Cape Mental Health invites the public to view a spectacular scene in the sky at Dolphin Beach, Table View on World Mental Health Day (October 10) and at Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg on October 23.

Gather your family, friends or colleagues, wear green and plan a ‘flash fly’ to enjoy time together in the fresh air at a safe, social distance while giving hope and raising funds for Cape Mental Health.

Cape Mental Health’s annual flagship event is going hybrid for its 27th edition, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to raise over R100 000 to enable this hard-working non-profit organisation to continue providing essential free mental healthcare services and ensuring that everyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, can enjoy equality in mental health access and care in an unequal world.

So let the organisers know when and where you will be flying if you’d like them to share your pop-up on social media. Contact @CTKiteFest on social media or email Remember to share your photos, videos and messages of hope on social media, tagging #EveryoneDeservesToFly and @CTKiteFest to feature on the official CTKiteFest social feeds.

Access all CTKiteFest online content including a variety of kite-making workshops and interviews with kiting friends from all over the world and find out why they fly in support of Cape Mental Health. Get inspired by the magic of soaring kites with activities for the little ones, or let your imagination fly high with a creative innovation competition!
