Lets Go Fly A Kite
You might be thinking, kites? Who still plays with those? Well, we do! Who wouldn’t want to see kites the size of blimps soaring overhead or see your little ones enjoying the treasures the nearby tide pools hold? This event isn’t just for the children, it is perfect for the kid at heart.The Running of the Bols is held every year and is a race where each team runs as fast as they can while dragging a circular kite behind them. See below for a short video of the race from 2010.
Don’t have your own kite? Well, that’s perfect because there is a kite building workshop at the festival where you can learn to make your very own kite! If you’d rather someone else do the work for you, Lincoln City is full of shops selling unique kites for all ages.
The Lincoln City Kite Festival attracts people from all over and is fun for everybody! Parking is limited, so a shuttle is available from the Lincoln City Outlet Mall.
