Speaking of Kites


By Justin Werner

Izumi Nohira and Chihiro Uchida from Saitama, Japan

I had a great time at the 2016 Lincoln City Fall Kite Festival. I got to interview the Region 9 Director of the American Kite Flying Association, meet some Japanese foreign exchange students, and see the epic Running of the Bols. Special thanks to Suzane Treece, Visitors Convention Bureau Event Coordinator, for pointing me to the AKA Region 9 Director Brett Morris for a high flying interview.

And thanks to everyone who showed up and saw the pilots fly.
