This Epic Sandcastle Festival In Nebraska Will Have You Longing For Summer

Summer is the time for festivals, and we’ve got some pretty terrific ones in Nebraska. In July, people gather at Lake McConaughy from miles around for Kites & Castles, an event that celebrates everything fun about summer on the beach.

Unfortunately, Kites & Castles was canceled in 2015 due to high water levels, but it returned in 2016. The 2017 event is planned for July 29th. The exact location is yet to be determined based on water levels; keep up on the latest news on the event’s website or Facebook page.

For another big kite event in Nebraska, check out the Callaway Kite Flight that takes place over Labor Day weekend.
