Who wouldn’t want to see the world’s largest teddy bear kite soaring into the skies above Filey? This September Oscar, a sixty-three feet high teddy bear kite, will appear as part of the inaugural Filey Kite Festival which will take place on the Country Car Park on the weekend of 18-19 September.
The teddy bear kite called Oscar was made by Craig Harby and Sue Kennedy from Cumbria. The kite had its maiden flight in 2014 at Crooklands Showfield close to Kendal. An adjudicator from the Guinness Book of Records verified that Oscar is the largest teddy bear kite in the world.
The largest actual teddy bear in the world stands at 63 feet 8 inches (it was made to celebrate Children’s Day in Mexico in 2019), so to make a kite teddy bear, and then get it airborne, is quite something. This magnificent contraption will be something to behold in the skies above Carr Naze. We presume that someone has told the radar station at RAF Staxton Wold?
