Rogallo Kite Festival June 16-17, 2018

Published on June 12, 2018 by elizamunn

The Rogallo Kite Festival will be held this year June 16-17, 2018 starting from 10 AM – 4 PM at Jockey’s Ridge State Park and Jockey’s Ridge Crossing. FREE Admission!!!

The Rogallo Kite Festival includes two days of kite flying to honor Francis Rogallo, NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the stunt kites, power kites and hang gliders that are flown today. In honor of Francis Rogallo and all of his accomplishments, Kitty Hawk Kites will put his ideas on display through flight! Come out and see large kite displays, learn to fly various kites, kitemaking, and more fun activities!

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, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular kites as the fly in the sky.

Kite flyers, take part in the Revolution kite competition!

Each Day the following events will take place:

Kites on the Dune and Revolution Simulator- Jockey’s Ridge State Park
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Kite Flying Lessons- Jockey’s Ridge State Park
10:00 AM – 12:00 NOON & 2:00PM – 3:00PM

PLEASE REMEMBER: Traditionally, this weekend is supposed to be extremely hot and sunny. While this makes for perfect flying conditions, it also means we all need to respect it and be prepared with plenty of water and sunscreen. If you plan to bring a pet, make sure you have the provisions necessary to keep them comfortable.

For more information on the Rogallo Kite Festival, please contact Kelsey Hammell,  Events Coordinator, at events@kittyhawk.com

Meet The Author
My husband and I both grew up vacationing every year in the Outer Banks. My family was the beach bum type. My mom has always been a lover of the beach so we spent every vacation on the beach as much as possible. From building sand castles, swimming, floating, boogie boarding, and having a nap on the beach...we knew how to relax! To this day my favorite thing to do is pack a picnic and eat lunch by the ocean. Seafood was always on the menu while at the beach so my dad would catch fish for us or go get us steamed crabs and shrimp! My husbands family was more about the experience. They enjoyed visiting the aquarium, finding the best local restaurants, and playing putt putt. They knew how to find an adventure! The two of us together are a pretty good mix of the two. We enjoy going and finding adventures but also love a good nap by the ocean.
