St Annes Kite Festival 2022: 16 pictures of the colour filled skies on Saturday

The skies over St Annes beach were filled with incredible colours and shapes as the St Annes Kite Festival took over the sands for the weekend.

The colourful celebration of craft, skill and family fun is a partnership between Fylde Council and kite-flying specialists SmileFactor10, and attracts tens of thousands of visitors from all over the UK as well as kite fliers from New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Ireland and more.

These were the scenes on Saturday, captured by photographer Michelle Adamson.
