“Now in its eighth year, the Morro Bay Kite Festival attracts between 3,000 and 5,000 spectators every year, as well as dozens of professional kite flyers.” -The Tribune
Morro Bay Kite Festival ’14
Literally, dozens of professional kite flyers, in Morro Bay, unreal! I guess when they heard the expression “go fly a kite” they did not detect the sarcasm. When one watches a kite ‘routine,’ which is choreographed to a song (typically something in the 80’s glam rock category…Foreigner, Journey, etc.), it’s hard not to chuckle a bit. But when taken seriously, kite dancing is a clear demonstration of ample free time ~ possible retirement, an appreciation for bright colors and flying objects.
always enjoyed this festival i love seeing all the kites in the sky and the performance put on by the kite teams!!
