Rogallo Kite Festival
June 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until June 16, 2019
Francis Rogallo was a NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the development of stunt kites, power kites, and hang gliders that are flown today. We invite you to join us and fly a kite at the 36th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival to celebrate Francis Rogallo and his many accomplishments.
Kitty Hawk Kites and friends will be displaying amazing 30 – 100 ft kites on top of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. Join us and fly a kite of your own, take part in FREE stunt kite lessons, kite coloring for the kiddos, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular kites as the fly in the sky.
