This free, family event offers great entertainment for all ages as professionals and amateurs, children and adults show off their kite-flying skills. Teams of kite-flyers and kite-dancers from around the country will amaze the crowd with choreographed kite routines set to music.
The first 500 children to attend on Saturday will receive free kites, donated by Central Coast Funds for Children. A highlight both days will be the traditional Candy Drop, when candy will fall from the sky.
Festivities get under way at 11 a.m. both days on the beach just north of Morro Rock and continue throughout the afternoon. Admission is free. For more information about this great Morro Bay tradition, go to www.morrobaykitefestival.org.
