Lincoln City Kite Festival 2014

The theme for the June 28-29, 2014 Annual Lincoln City Kite Festival was "Unleased".  A two day kite flying adventure full of fun for everyone from kids to adults.

This is my first time going to the Lincoln City Kite Festival so, it was a great treat and, I can't wait to go next year...especially with camera in hand.

I have been to the World Kite Museum in Long Beach, Washington but, I didn't see any kites there the size of the ones I saw on the beach in Lincoln City. Some of them are gigantic...for example the whale kite, in the first photo is the size of a real whale.

The sixth photo down, you will even get a better perspective of size with the octopus or, squid one (also, in the first pic here)...they are huge. They are also super colorful and very creative.

What really caught my attention, though were the "Jelly Fish" kites (second photo). They are small but you won't get any cooler...kite-wise. They emulate a real swimming Jelly Fish perfectly when the kite is flying in the air.

The last photo here is of a guy digging in the sand and building a masterpiece. He was some distance from the kite festivities and just having a ball. Why not?
