While crowds begin to gather at the D River Wayside, semi depressed kites are waiting on the sandy ground like puppies waiting for the kids to come home. Heads bob and tails wag but without the requisite wind they sit and hope.
Lighter, more traditional, kites were airborne needing nothing more than a breath of wind to get aloft.
Alas, even some in the viewing gallery weren’t able to muster the energy to rise yet.
The table is set, the volunteers are cheerfully assisting people, the vendors are readying their booths and all are praying that the expected rain won’t be too heavy.
Welcome to the Lincoln City fall 2023 Kite Festival! The festival runs from 9a.m. until 3p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Visit Explore Lincoln City for more information.
