Creatures from Around the Globe

Posted by Maureen Taylor / May 12, 2010

This weekend (May 15th and 16th), there will be creatures from around the globe swirling in the skies above Rockaway Beach, Oregon. There will be at least ten groups of AKA fliers featured this year at the Annual Rockaway Beach Kite Festival, sponsored by the Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce.

These World Champion Kite Flyers will be showing off their talents, handling humungous “creature” kites and making all sorts and styles of kites dance in the skies above the beach. There also will be a booth for children to create their own kites, as well as many food and craft vendors showing off their own particular talents.

This year’s event will outshine any kite festival in previous years, so if you have not been to Rockaway Beach recently, this weekend is a perfect reason to come on down, and get reacquainted with Oregon’s Best Beach!

Hope to see you here! – Maureen Taylor, Chamber member and owner of Sea Haven Motel and Hostel, Rockaway Beach.
