Take flight where the Wright brothers took theirs! At the Wright Brothers National Memorial, you’ll learn to fly a stunt or power kite and watch the experts display their skills. Watch as the sky becomes filled with vibrant colors from the kites. Whether you want to fly your own kite or watch the professionals put on performances with their kites that range from flying set to music to synchronized performances, people of all ages will have fun celebrating kites. This Outer Banks event is held on Jockey’s Ridge directly across from Kitty Hawk Kites.This event is usually held in mid-July.
