Zoom to the Summer Kite Festival

Zoom to the Summer Kite Festival

Lincoln City, OR – The entries have been submitted and we now have a winner of the 2019 Kite Festival Theme Contest. The theme for the 2019 Kite Festival is Zoom!

“Zoom” was submitted by Portland resident Vicki Schmidt and will be the theme for the 2019 Summer and Fall Kite Festivals. For her creative efforts, Vicki received a signature Finders Keepers glass float.

Working through the alphabet, a new theme for the 2019 kite festival was determined using the letter “Z.” Explore Lincoln City held a naming contest throughout the month of December to find the most creative theme using that letter. Over 300 entries were submitted by kite enthusiasts from around the Pacific Northwest, with Vicki’s zooming to the top spot. Multiple entries of “Zoom” were received during the contest and Vicki’s entry was randomly selected from those entries.

Join us on the beach at the D River State Recreation Site in Lincoln City for the Summer Kite Festival, June 22nd and 23rd as some of the most colorful "big show" kites take flight. Activities during the festival include kids kite making, professional kite demonstrations and the Running of the Bols, which is a footrace across the beach with each participant harnessed to a parachute kite. The festival runs from 10am to 4pm each day and is fun for the entire family.
