Wright Kite Festival

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until July 18, 2016
Take flight where flight first began with Kitty Hawk Kites and the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Enjoy a walk through the museum, and on the hollowed grounds where Wilbur and Orville took their historic first flight in 1903, then come join us for some fun flight of your own.
Large 30 – 100 foot kites will be flying high on display. We invite you to come fly kites of your own, take FREE stunt and power kite flying lessons, and bring the kiddos on over to our kite making station.
Admission to the park is $7, but participation in the kite festival is totally FREE!
