Fly Into Spring & Easter Eggstravaganza
April 22nd & 23rd, 2011
Did you know April is National Kite Month? Pretty sweet, right? Who doesn’t love to fly a kite? And the Outer Banks is pretty much the king of kite-flying destinations…just ask the Wright Brothers.
To celebrate National Kite Month, Kitty Hawk Kites kicks off spring with the annual “Fly Into Spring and Easter Eggstravaganza” event! This annual spring event will be held on April 22nd and 23rd from 10am to 4pm at Jockey Ridge State Park…a perfect spot for some windy windyness.
- The Kite Festival is a free event and is open to the public.
- On Friday and Saturday, spectators can enjoy large show kites on Jockey’s Ridge, including animal kites over 50′ in size!
- Kitty Hawk Kites is offering free stunt and power kite lessons throughout the day on the dune. Just find a staff member and they will direct you to the proper area/person. Learn to fly dual line stunt kites and power kites!
- Spectators will also have the opportunity to see kites of various shapes, styles, sizes, and colors decorate the sky throughout the day.
In addition to the festivities at Jockey’s Ridge, the Kitty Hawk Kites store in Nags Head (directly across from Jockey’s Ridge) will host the Easter Egg Hunt which will ONLY be on Saturday, the 23rd, from 11am to 1pm! Easter Eggstravaganza is the LARGEST Easter Egg Hunt on the Outer Banks! The Easter Bunny will be at Kitty Hawk Kites for photo opportunities and over 2000 plastic eggs will be hidden for egg hunts, which will begin at 11am. Several hunts will be held from 11am to 1pm.
