Major Kite Fest Sets June Dates on Central Oregon Coast
(Lincoln City, Oregon) - Prepare to take flight on June 27 and 28 on the central Oregon coast, as the 31st Annual Summer Kite Festival descends upon the D-River Wayside in Lincoln City. This hallmark event is a celebration of professional and leisure kite fliers with some of the most colorful big "show kites" in the world.
Each year, in anticipation of the kite festival, a naming contest is held to pick the theme of the event. Progressively working through the alphabet, this year, a new theme was determined using the letter "V." The winning theme is "Veterans" submitted by Tracy Hurtado from Cornelius, Oregon. Tracy's theme was selected from nearly 250 entries that were submitted this past December. As the winner of the contest, Tracy has received a Lincoln City family getaway package courtesy of the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau.
"A Salute to our Veterans", a celebration of our service men and women, will be the theme of this year's Summer Kite Festival. Get out your patriotic attire and join us on the beach for two days of kite flying festivities. The event will run from 10am-4pm each day.
For more information about the Summer Kite Festival event schedule, contact the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau at 800-452-2151 or visit www.oregoncoast.org.
