April breezes make perfect kite flying weather; and the broad beaches of Ocean City, Maryland offer the perfect kite-launching site. With nary a tree in sight and plenty of wind off the ocean, even Charlie Brown could get his kite to soar in Ocean City. Ideal kite-flying conditions will bring kite flyers of all kinds to Ocean City on the weekend of April 26-28 for the famous MD International Kite Expo.
Thousands of people travel to Ocean City every year to watch colorful kites of all shapes and sizes soar through the air. The festival draws kite manufacturers and master kite flyers from around the world and features hundreds of beautiful and unusual kites. Among the delights to be found at the Ocean City kite festival will be crowd-pleasing giant kites, intricate geometic cellular kites, dancing dragon kites, cute critter kites of all kinds (and species!), traditional diamond kites, gorgeous hand-painted art kites and much more.
Ocean City vacationers can also expect to see plenty of new and unusual kite designs from world’s best kite designers. Kite-making workshops, thrilling kite battles, amazing stunt kite demonstrations and more also await festival attendees.
If you can’t make the April kite fest, Ocean City hosts the Sunfest Kite Festival from September 19-22 in the fall. Both kite festivals are sponsored by the Kite Loft, a good place to buy a kite if you want to join in the fun on the beach.
