Wizards of wind
BROOKINGS, OREGON (July 8, 2015) – The sky will be filled with color at the 23rd Annual Southern Oregon Kite Festival, July 18th and 19th.
The action will begin on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the kite field at the Port of Brookings-Harbor. This free two-day “one of a kind” event is one of the most unique kite festivals in the country. An invitational kite festival, it attracts nationally and internationally renowned kite fliers and kite makers to the community of Brookings-Harbor where they perform with their colorful collection of kites. More than thirty “Wizards of Wind” will be guests of the community and entertain the spectators with their awe-inspiring routines choreographed to music, creating an atmosphere of fun and excitement for attendees of all ages.
Popular announcer, Arnold Stellema, will introduce the “Wizards of Wind” as they perform and will educate the spectators about what they are seeing on the kite field. Attendees are invited to set up their chairs or blankets around the perimeter of the kite field and enjoy the performances.
Unlike at a typical kite festival, the kite fliers enjoy interacting with the crowds and can often be seen walking around the perimeter of the kite field displaying their kites up close to spectators – letting them inspect and sometimes even fly the kites. Through their performances the kite fliers show the crowd just how much fun kite flying really is.
The weekend’s activities also include free children’s kite building workshops from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. both days. There is a vendor area with a variety of specialty food items and a multitude of crafts and merchandise for sale. A pancake breakfast sponsored by the Harbor Fire Volunteers is held on Sunday morning from 7 a.m. to noon.
A kite auction banquet to which the kite fliers, kite makers, and local businesses contribute collectible kites and other memorabilia to benefit the kite festival is a special attraction on Saturday evening.
Attendees are encouraged to park next to the Chamber of Commerce building at the Port and take the free shuttles to the kite field.
The Southern Oregon Kite Festival is free and fun for everyone. Please visit www.sokf.org.
