Summer Kite Festival
Spacer

KiteGroundJune 26 & 27, 2010
Lincoln City, named by Kitelines Magazine as one of the best places to fly kites in North America, celebrates with three kite festivals each year, two outdoors and one indoor.

Situated on the 45th parallel, Lincoln City is positioned at the ideal point for mixing warm equatorial air and cold polar air, which creates ideal winds for outdoor flying. In addition, the clean air flowing directly off the ocean is preferred by kite flying experts, and novices will see a difference in their abilities as well. Demonstrations, competitions and other great fun in the summer sun.

This year's theme is "Quadzilla". At the festival we will attempt to break the world record for most quad-line kites in the air at the same time on our beach (Oh yah! Mega Fly baby!) Persons that fly in our world record breaking attempt will be entered in a drawing for 1 Free AKA Convention registration, compliments of the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau (Summer Kite Festival invited fliers are not eligible to enter the raffle- one entry per person) The winner will be announced on Sunday, June 27 at the end of the Mega Fly.
