Featured flier Ronda Brewer is definitely X-Kited to be involved in this year’s Fall Kite Festival. Brewer, a Lincoln City native, enjoys reuniting with other featured fliers.

“It’s like a big family reunion,” Brewer said. “Getting to visit with the other fliers is a real treat. The kite flying community is a fun, quirky bunch, and because of travel, we don’t always get to see one another. We love what we do and sharing our kite flying passion with others, especially kids, is a joy.”

“X-Kitement,” a playful take on the word excitement, is the theme for the Fall Kite Festival. To celebrate the theme, professional kite fliers will be wearing superhero costumes and capes while dazzling audiences with their signature stunts. Visitors are encouraged to take part by dressing as their favorite superhero on both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Where to stay for this event - Where to eat - Map and Virtual Tour
