Coolest Event to Go Fly a Kite

Flying High Over the Harbor Kite Festival

Harbor Walk Village, Destin, FL

(850) 837-2800 www.kittyhawk.com


The Kitty Hawk kite festival is comparable to a Macy’s Day parade but in a much warmer climate and with larger-than-life show kites gliding through the air! Mark your calendars for Sept. 17-18 and get ready for a day of fun family activities from 10am-4pm. The two-day festival will feature a 100-ft. octopus, an 80-ft. panda, and a 50-ft. gator. Everyone is encouraged to bring their kites and participate.

 Kitty Hawk Kites has been teaching the world to fly since 1974! During the festival weekend, not only will there be opportunities to watch professional stunt kite flying but you can take free kite flying lessons and even make your own kite. Younger kids can fly a standard single line kite while those a bit older can try maneuvering a power kite or a stunt kite that has two or four lines. 

 Kitty Hawk Kites has the largest selection of kites in the area so it is only natural for them to host the fall and spring festivals where kids and adults alike are mesmerized by kites that can only be described as having a big WOW factor!  Festival attendees will receive free shuttle boat service from the docks at HarborWalk Village to Norriego Point to enjoy the flying high kites and kite flying lessons. Don’t miss out on the Flying High Over the Harbor Kite Festival this year!

Cool factors: Giant show kites, free kite flying lessons, free kite making classes, fun for the whole family
