Rogallo and Wright Kite Festivals – Outer Banks, NC

Alright friends, summer is right around the corner…June 20 to be exact! That means beaches, bathing suits, sunblock, flip flops, ice cream cones, and cruising with the top down are coming your way! We don't know if you have heard but the Outer Banks is THE place to be during the spring and summer months…well whom are we kidding, it’s fantastic here all year long! The summer is especially fun though because of great events such as the Rogallo and Wright Kite Festivals that are coming up pretty soon. Get all of the details below so you don’t miss out!

Rogallo Kite Festival

Date: June 10-12, 2016

Place: Jockey's Ridge State Park and Jockey’s Ridge Crossing

This festival pays special tribute to Francis Rogallo, inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions spearheaded the sport of hang gliding and you can see his designs have also been used in stunt kites, power kites and hang gliders. This festival will allow you to see some huge kite displays, learn some kite making for yourself, and even learn to fly some incredible kites.

Wright Kite Festival

Place: Wright Brothers National Memorial and Kitty Hawk Kites in Kill Devil Hills, NC.
