URL: Fall Kite Festival
Oregon's breezy coastline is the perfect location to "Go Fly a Kite!" In Lincoln City, they celebrate the art of kiting in an annual fall festival on the Lincoln City beach.
The kite festival lasts an entire weekend and it draws professional fliers from around the globe. Spectators can watch individual and team demonstrations and highly-competitive contests that test participant's skills. You may also see large inflatables, kite trains with multiple kits flying in formation, or a kite arch which links multiple kites to a single line.
There are always free demonstrations, kite making workshops for kids, and the infamous "Running of the Bols" in which participants race down the beach with donut-shaped kites in tow. Check the Lincoln City website for dates and details.
