Atlantic Coast Kite Festival
May 4 - May 5
Kite fliers and spectators of all ages experience a visual feast at the Atlantic Coast Kite Festival. This popular event features a variety of activities appropriate for all ages and all levels of kite aficionados. Families are invited to participate in kite building workshops that include kite materials and instructions on how to build a kite, as well as the aerodynamics of kite flying and kite safety. American Kite Association members from throughout the East Coast present kite demonstrations, perform kite routines to music, and fly giant kites (up to 80 feet long)! Kite vendors sell various kite products. Awards are also given each day for oldest and youngest kite fliers, funniest kite, most unusual kite, and biggest kite. Admission to the kite festival is free. Held on the beach at 17th Street.
