A sure sign of Northwest Summer is the annual Kite Festival in Lincoln City, Oregon. Next weekend, June 23-24, a kaleidoscope of colorful kites of every shape and size will soar above the sand and sea in what Kitelines Magazine has called “one of the best places to fly kites.” Both professional and amateur kite enthusiasts show off their inventive creations, from 3-D box kites to animal shapes to fanciful imaginary creatures. This year’s theme is Stars and Stripes, so expect to be dazzled by red, white, and blue.
The weekend includes kite-building workshops, demonstrations by expert kite builders and flyers, a kids kite parade, and a Saturday evening Night Fly with illuminated kites and live music on the beach.
