GUIDELINES FOR FUN at Sunfest Kite Festival 2021:

 

There are amazing things to see and enjoy at Sunfest Kite Festival: kites of all shapes & sizes flying in the sky, ground displays featuring colorful banners & inflatable objects, giant bubbles, sport kite demonstrations, and more.

 

*ALL ACTIVITIES ARE WIND & WEATHER DEPENDENT!

 

Dry weather & a steady breeze are important! Please keep in mind that we will be happy to fly if wind is in our favor. North or South wind is best for our beach, wind speeds between 6mph to 18 mph are the most comfortable flying conditions. Unfortunately, we are not able to fly kites if wind is too light or non-existing, as well as when wind is too strong, or too gusty.

 

GUIDELINES FOR FUN at a Kite Festival…

 

Spectators can enjoy Sunfest Kite Festival from the boardwalk or the beach. There are designated areas for different types/sizes of kites.

--Single line kites will be flying in the area in front of The Kite Loft and to the south thru 4th Street.

--Multi-line Sport/Stunt kites will be flying north of the The Kite Loft near 6th Street.

 

*It is IMPORTANT for spectators and kitefliers to BE AWARE! Always LOOK UP & LOOK DOWN!

*BE CAREFUL as you walk through the flying fields. It is possible to be looking up at the beautiful kites only to trip over a ground anchor or ground display at your feet, or walk into flying line.

* Kites are tethered to ground anchors using strong lines.

* Kites occasionally fall out of the sky or break free without warning.

* Changes in wind speed or direction will also cause the kites to change flight direction or come down.

* Kites may range in size from several inches to over 100 feet long, some have hard frames (sticks) while others are soft kites, fabric that fills with air.

* Kites may have multiple lines supporting or controlling them.

* Please ask your children to BE RESPONSIBLE and to stay close to you. It is easy for excited young visitors to get separated or wander away.

*Please DO NOT TOUCH the kites, lines or ground displays without the kite owner’s permission!

*Most important…HAVE FUN! Meet & talk with the kiters! Ask questions! Kitefliers are friendly and love to talk about their creations, experiences and share kite flying tips.

*HAVE MORE FUN by flying a kite!

It is expected that Sunfest Kite Festival participants and spectators will follow all CDC, State of Maryland and Ocean City safe social distancing and mask/facial covering rules on the beach, boardwalk and in buildings.
