This Kite Festival on the Oregon Coast Will Blow You Away

If you’re looking for something super awesome to do on the Oregon Coast, head on over to Lincoln City this month for the Lincoln City Kite Festival! But don’t take our word for it… Listen to just one review from someone who attended on Facebook:

We had never attended a kite festival before and were blown away by this wonderful event. The large kites flying section was great, the performances by the fliers were amazing and the overall set up and running of the event was top notch. Highly recommend a trip to the Oregon Coast for this event! (From Stacey Wood Pennington via FB)
