“Let’s Go Fly a Kite” lyrics were going through my head all day long as we attended the 22nd Annual Southern Oregon Kite Festival in Brookings, OR.
We had the choice to stay in town, with temps being around 100 (we thought we left Arizona!), or go to the Oregon Coast. Tough choice right?
The event is held all weekend long, but we were only able to attend the Sunday portion of the program. With that being said, it was worth going to even just the one day.
The free festival is held right next to the beach at the Port of Brookings Harbor.
We pulled into a parking spot right by the beach, but they also had free shuttles running as well.
When we arrived there was some talk about the wind not being strong enough. Not sure if that was true or not cause it was one heck of a show. These flyers and kites were AMAZING!
The flyers that participated in the event are some of the best in the country. They provide wonderful entertainment and artistry as many of them make their own kites. Some even have SALVAGED material. They are speaking our language!
During the weekend there was an auction, which we were not able to attend, as well as a pancake breakfast. We did get to see the flyers, eat some fair type food, and enjoy the beach.
Who could ask for more?
