Lincoln City’s sandy shoreline is a magnet for kite flyers of all ages – kids and adults! This summer, Lincoln City pulls out all the stops to celebrate the life of kite flying with The Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival.
A good kite festival has been compared to a 3 ring circus, with large, showy kites (think life sized kites in the shape of gray whales) shows of kites flying to music and a place for all the kids to enjoy building and learning how to fly their creation.
Ready to come down to the beach and enjoy this year’s Summer Kite Festival?
