Central Whidbey welcomes the Whidbey Island Kite Festival to the Camp Casey Conference Center, just south of Coupeville.
This location offers a majestic backdrop of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound, where the kite festival features impressive ground and air displays of color and imagination and is fun for the entier family.
During the festivities, you will find things like kids' kitemaking, sport kite lessons, and sport kite demonstrations.
The Whidbey Island Kite Festival is an AKA-sanctioned (www.kite.org) event. Sport kite competitions and demonstrations will take place both Saturday and Sunday.
The Whidbey Island Kite Festival is presented by the Whidbey Island Kite Festival Association and the Whidbey Island Kite Fliers (www.whidbeykiteclub.net).
There will be two mass ascensions - one Saturday and one Sunday. A mass ascension is where everyone is invited to fly a kite of the specified style on the field at the same time. The style of kite for Saturday is either delta or cellular and Sunday is flat/bowed or sparless.
There will also be a teddy-bear drop each day at 1:00 for children under 10.
The Central Whidbey Lions Club will have a booth at the field with hot dogs and soda.
