Oregon Field Guide

Kite Festival

Tonight we have a story about a sport that includes floating.. fighting.. and synchronized dancing. That’s one way to say: this isn’t your grandfather’s way to fly kites. Field Guide’s Vince Patton and videographer Michael Bendixen found kites from two inches wide to the size of a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon… at the largest kite festival in Oregon, in Lincoln City.
