Yunus Akyuz, from the Nurture Educational Multicultural Society, told Lanarkshire Live: “We are delighted to have held our second kite festival. Children and adults participated in the activities and had a lot of fun.
“Different kites carried the Cambuslang wind behind them. This year’s theme was ‘Paint the Skies of Cambuslang’ and we believe it would build community feeling for people of all ages and celebrate the arrival of summer.
“We are very excited about our upcoming kite festivals, and hope to see a lot more people next year.”
The festival was attended by Rutherglen and Hamilton West MP Margaret Ferrier.
The MP added: ‘It was great to join voters at the Cambuslang Kite Festival this weekend which was great fun for all who made it.
“The Nurture Society did a great job putting on the event, and it was really nice to see the kites flying in the clear skies on Saturday as the community came together.”
