Parafest combines an aircraft flying event and trade exhibition with a music festival. It’s based at Snowdonia Aerospace Centre in north Wales,

Paraglider pilots can easily drive to many great paragliding sites the area has to offer and paramotor pilots can fly out of Llanbedr Airfield and explore everywhere from the coastline to the mountains and valleys of Snowdonia.

There will also be a static winch on site for any suitably qualified pilots to use for flights and wing demos. Still TBC but there may be an Aerotow available for hang glider pilots to take high flights into the mountains of Snowdonia.

Parafest isn’t just for pilots, it’s for everyone and anyone. It looks like there will be flying stalls, caterers, a licensed bar and plenty of live music.

Tickets cost £65 per adult for the weekend and includes camping. The camping fields will be open from 0900 Thursday (July 26) so plently of time to get in early and spread your tent. If you’re caravan inclined or have a paravan  🙂  it looks like there is plently of space, and at no extra charge! Winner!

Don’t forget to charge the batteries as it seems there’s no electric hook ups. Getting back to nature!

There’s even the option to fly into parafest as it’s got a huge runway. Feeling a hint of luxury – they’ve also got Boutique camping.

Wish I wasn’t on holiday!
