Come join the fun as serious kite flyers share their sky art at the Fort Fisher State Recreation Area for the Cape Fear Kite Festival presented in partnership with the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce. This is the final kite event of the professional kite flying season with more than just your average kites filling the sky on the seashore. See incredible shapes, sizes, styles and of course colors float, soar and ride the air. Friday festivities begin with a sneak peek of kite flying fun at the Kure Beach Pier from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and later at the Courtyard by Marriott Carolina Beach beach front on Friday after dark for a special “Night with Kites,” and then continue during both Saturday and Sunday in Kure Beach. Please check social media for updates. Live bands, food trucks and other vendors will attend the festival.
