Each year, Fort Fisher Recreation Area at Kure Beach becomes a magical land filled with kites flying high, dipping above the sand and close to the waves. The two-day Cape Fear Kite Festival isn’t just for experienced flyers, but invites all levels including little ones. For those wanting to learn more about kiting, it’s also a great experience to put you in contact with professional kite flyers while witnessing larger-than-life kites take over the beach.

How cool is this event! Will you be attending this year or have you attended before?
