Dale Ray and his Giant Orange Lobster Kite

Lincoln City is perfect for kite flying and kite watching!

Every weekend from July to October, kite experts will bring giant show pieces to the D River Wayside. Look for flying octopi, cats, and teddy bears. Some of these flying wonders are as large as 90 feet long! Bring your camera.

You’ll also see 250 and 450 square foot lifter kites with 150 foot tails. They  are visible a mile from the beach.

Guest performers include Ray and Donna Hertz, Barry and Susan Tislow, Ed Paulson, Rod & Cindy Thrall, Russ & Diane Little, Phil & Barbara Burks, and David and Susan Gomberg. For more information on our featured kite fliers, please visit our Kite Flyer Bios page!

Summer kite shows are facilitated by Northwest Winds kite stores, Ashley Inn and Suites, Kyllos, Chinook Winds, KYTE Radio, and Oregon Coast Today.
