From Lincoln City Visitors and Convention Bureau
Kites will be unleashed this fall at the D-River Wayside in Lincoln City October 4 and 5, during the 36th Annual Fall Kite Festival.
Professional and amateur kit fliers will descend on the wayside both days and display some of the most colorful and striking “show kites” ever seen. The event is free and not to be missed!
The theme this year is Unleashed, and as the theme indicates, this festival is sure to be an exciting one. Activities such as the Running of the Bols, which is a footrace across the beach with each participant harnessed with parachute kites, or the Rok Battle, where fliers duke it out with Japanese-style Rokkaku kites! It’s all sure to get your adrenaline pumping!
The event will run from 10am to 4pm both days. For more information on the Fall Kite Festival event schedule, contact the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau at 800-452-2151 or visit www.oregoncoast.org.
